This action research study describes the incorporation of a video-editing activity in an 'Introduction to Reflective Teaching Practice' course. Key features of the video-editing activities included (1) active videotaping of preservice teachers' field teaching by university supervisors, (2) self-directed video review by preservice teachers to support writing a reflective lesson analysis, (3) selection and editing of video vignettes by preservice teachers to illustrate their written reflections, and (4) posting of video vignettes on the students' electronic portfolio pages. 16 preservice teachers participated in this study.

Vignettes have long been used as a tool to model, teach, and research behavior and understanding. They also have been used to stimulate discussion and problem solving in learning situations. The paper summarizes an analysis of the effects of vignette instruction on vignette quiz performance in three sections of a blended graduate educational psychology course. Study results suggest that vignette instruction provides efficient near-transfer opportunities and richer scaffolding experiences on student mastery of subject matter.
