The Use of the Library of Video Excerpts (L.O.V.E.) in Personnel Preparation Programs

To provide teacher candidates with instructional and educational best practices focused on the visually impaired, Ellen Trief, Ph.D. at Hunters College, developed a Library of Video Excerpts (L.O.V.E.) that is accessible by closed captioning and voice-over audio descriptions. The collection of videos represents teaching in various areas (literacy, braille reading and writing, mathematics, the Nemeth Braille Code for Mathematics and Science Notation, the abacus, technology, and science and social studies) and grade levels, and is available to American and Canadian universities. This report documents the development and launching of the collection.
