Constructing Videocases to Help Novices Learn to Facilitate Discussions in Science and English: How Does Subject Matter Matter?
In this study, the authors explored preservice teacher’s beliefs about conducting discussions and the potential of videocase construction for supporting teacher learning by investigating the following question: ‘To what extent and how does making a videocase help preservice teachers investigate their facilitation of a subject‐specific discussion?’ This study revealed that all five interns gained insights about how they lead discussions by constructing and discussing their videocase. The study also suggests several areas that require further attention in preparing preservice teachers to lead discussions in subject matter contexts.

Seeing through a Different Lens: What Do Interns Learn When They Make Video Cases of their Own Teaching?
This study focused on four preservice teacher candidates who were completing a yearlong internship at a Midwestern university in the United States. In their courses, the interns were learning to facilitate interactive discussions in English language arts. The authors explored how the interns' perceptions of their self-selected audience influenced what they noticed, talked about, and learned as they constructed a video case about their teaching. All interns gained insights about their teaching as they constructed their case. Implications for teacher education and future research directions are discussed.
