This website is a toolkit to support anyone wanting to run a video club, or use video recordings of lessons with mathematics teachers, to support professional development. While there is a lot of recognition of the potential for using video as a tool to learn about teaching, there is also a lot of evidence that it is hard to make good use video.
On this site you will find resources to support you set up and run professional development with video, using a method that has been tried and tested. The way of working described and exemplified here originated in courses run at the Open University in the 1980s and draws on the ideas of Caleb Gattegno, John Mason and Barbara Jaworski among others.
All resources here are freely available. Funding for this web-site has come from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the University of Bristol. If you do use these materials we would love to hear from you. This work is supported by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). There is a user forum on this website where you can share your experiences of using video.
