About the course

Observing student learning is introduced in the Getting Started with Lesson Study course.  This session is an opportunity to learn more about this data collection method, which can be used in a range of formal and non-formal learning environments.


Topics to be covered

  • Observing performance vs. learning (you can perform without learning and you can learn without performing)
  • Sampling methods (ad libitum, focal, behavioral and scan)
  • Observation measures (latency, frequency and duration)
  • Stimulated recall (video)
  • Critical incident (I used to think, but now I think, and now I will)
