The most effective way to develop the planning and coaching competence of student teachers and mentors is an open question. This study developed and evaluated joint training sessions for pre-service teachers and their mentors using video analysis techniques. Using the Competence as a Continuum theoretical framework, qualitative content analysis of video tests revealed improvements in the planning and coaching of students and mentors in the treatment group but not the control group. Results and their implications are discussed from the perspective of optimising planning and coaching capacities of trainee teachers and their supervisors.

Anja Augsdörfer Bio: 

After completing my apprenticeship in banking, I soon decided that my real passion was education and technology. Whilst studying teacher training in vocational education at the Universität Hamburg, I worked as a student assistant at the Institute of Vocational- and Business Education to get a first insight into academic and scientific activities. After completing my studies, I absolved my second state examination as a teacher for economics and Business English at a vocational school for retailing. Since then I have been working at different kinds of schools teaching learners of all age groups with heterogeneous learning needs. Currently I am working as a research associate in the state funded project ‘Professional teacher actions to promote subject-related learning under changing social conditions’ (ProfaLe) at the Universität of Hamburg with a focus on the development, implementation and evaluation of innovative, technology- based training settings for teacher students and their mentors within school practical activities. My research interests include:

  •  teacher education in vocational training (media technology and business education)

  • teacher professionalization during school practical activities (content-focussed coaching; mentoring; annotated video portfolios; video based reflexion, PID, noticing)

  • developing and evaluating innovative, technology-based training settings

  • video based teaching research and competency measurement (video-based tests)

  • Research-based learning and teaching and (Digital) Game-based learning

  • Mixed methods
