This short paper explores the use of video clips from the teachers’ TV website with Secondary PGCE students at St Martin’s College, now the University of Cumbria. The video was made available to students via Blackboard and was used to engage students in on-line discussion prior to college-based sessions relating to classroom practice. In the workshop, the technology and the process used were described and student feedback was used to indicate the usefulness of this approach. The workshop encouraged discussion from participants in order to generate ideas as to how this teaching approach might be taken forward.
