Episode 55: Jim Thompson and Video Coaching with Grace


According to a recent study, 75 percent of teachers have used videos for their own professional development in the past year. What does improvement look like for teachers? This is a question  Jim Thompson has been vigorously researching for the last twelve years.

Jim, a former social studies teacher, prides himself on the teaching experience that has propelled him into successful school administration and educational mentoring careers. With more than 30 years of working in various administrative and teaching roles, he has taught at elementary, middle school, high school levels, as well as undergraduate and graduate-level students. Jim was even National Distinguished Principal and New York State Elementary Principal of the Year for the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) before retiring from that career. He currently serves as the executive director of video coaching for the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership. He also co-authored a book with Dr. Casey Kosiorek titled A Quick Guide To Video Coaching.

In this episode, we discuss video as a way for teachers to expand their knowledge, create connections, and explore new ways to teach. We also discuss why it's important for educators who are interested in using videos as part of their teaching practice to understand the benefits and challenges associated with this form of professional development. Lastly, we discuss the importance of extending grace in this second round of COVID-19.
