Quick Reference

A method used in the development and initial training of teachers whereby the teacher or trainee teacher teaches for a very short time, usually only ten or fifteen minutes, under the supervision of a tutor, to a ‘class’ of their peers. The micro‐lesson is then analysed by teacher, ‘class’, and tutor, sometimes with the help of a media recording. Its purpose can be to encourage reflective practice, to build confidence, to address specific skills, or to try out unfamiliar strategies, methods, or material in a safe learning environment.

Subjects: Education.
