Improving Learning through Teacher CPD and Coaching

Over the last decade I have been involved in observing and coaching many dozens of teachers.  However providing detailed feedback is fraught with difficulties.  Rarely do we have the opportunity to analyse these lessons detail, and feedback to staff is always second-hand, through the eyes of the observer.

One way of improving coaching this is through the use of video to capture a lesson and then analyse it yourself or with a colleague. I recommend Panopto to enable effective and secure use of video for improving teaching and learning.


Is a powerful yet cost-effective CDP tool to facilitate secure video recording, review, and sharing of lessons. Some benefits are

  • Lesson observation
  • Self reflection & peer review
  • Cost-effective coaching and mentoring
  • Secure storage and sharing of videos
  • No special equipment needed
  • Scaleable software solution that utilises existing hardware

Many schools are finding Panopto enables them to deliver high-impact coaching and CPD without the overhead of supply cover.  It harnesses powerful real-time annotation of video with security features to satisfy data protection and privacy concerns. The teacher of the lesson being recorded has full control of the recording and no footage can be viewed by others without that teacher’s consent.

More information can be found on the Panopto website.
