This paper reports on the trial of video excerpts of mathematics teaching used in teaching preservice primary teachers in a Bachelor of Education program. Preservice teachers viewed, in either a lecture or tutorial setting, a video clip of an experienced mathematics teacher teaching a basic mathematics concept to a small group of students. They were then asked to identify the focus of the lesson and aspects of the of teacher’s practice that they deemed effective; list any questions that they would ask the teacher; and then compare the practice demonstrated in the clip with that which they’d encountered on practicum. Findings highlight the need to work explicitly on developing the skills required to analyse teaching, and provide important directions for curriculum development in the course.
