In 2017, the School of Teacher Education adopted Sibme, a video-based coaching tool, to support university supervisor’s support of teacher candidates during clinical field practice. Video-based coaching tools, like Sibme, allows for a close examination of the types of feedback supervisors provide and the impact of those feedback on teacher candidates’ instructional development. This presentation showcases a multi-stage empirical study examining the frequency, type, and impact of supervisor’s feedback on teacher candidates’ performance on edTPA.
