This chapter turns to the use of video for Trainers, Coaches, Supervisors and Faculty who work with others in using video to advance their practice. These activities can be used within a professional development approach where those who facilitate video analysis among teachers are asked to “practice what they preach”. Feedback conference talk will be a primary focus of reflection on mentoring. Where to access such video materials from open sources on the web and how to curate it at the local level is addressed.
