Full disclosure, I recently published a book called Video in Teacher Learning (Corwin), which has a lot of ways to use video artifacts for teacher development--and recently, for my institution, excerpted some of these freely-available video resources into this guidance doc for doing virtual fieldwork, attached. Hope it is of use!
Thanks for sharing those two YouTube playlists, Joe. The Basic English series is a growing collection of lessons I film with two high beginner (now becoming low intermediate) students from Brazil. I focus mainly on grammar through conversation. We've done some speaking games and oral reading activities that could be replicated in a traditional or virtual classroom.
By the way, a lot of the tips and activities I'm sharing now on my ELT blog are for online teachers. In a recent post, I described the games I've played at mass live streams (200+). If teacher trainees want to observe online teaching in this kind of setting, they're welcome to join a public live stream of mine on Hallo. I'm in my third month on this platform, and I still struggle at times with "classroom management" and tech issues. Comments and questions can fly by at an incredible speed, multiple requests to join me on camera have to be handled diplomatically, and inevitably various tech glitches pop up to test my ability to keep things going. Viewers include other teachers and tutors, so I'm fine with trainees observing and evaluating my performance. My schedule on Hallo is posted on my profile page.
It may be interesting for trainees to observe how my speaking rate and style change a bit depending on who and where I'm teaching. A recent YouTube lesson on vocabulary is a good example of my scripted speech. It's different from the unscripted speaking I do in the Basic English series or the more advanced live streams I offer on Hallo.
Hope some of this helps. Best wishes to all!
Thank you both, Jennifer and Joe!
