Educational records of practice are “detailed documentation of teaching and learning...taken directly from teaching and learning without analysis, which enable [people] to look at practice” (Bass et al, 2002). This type of documentation – including videos of classroom teaching, recordings of content area interviews with students, and work samples from students and teachers – plays a critical role in the work of educational researchers, instructors in teacher education programs, as well as by others involved in the study and improvement of teaching.

Our project will contribute to the development of these important resources and also inform qualitative data reuse and curators of qualitative data, an understudied area in data reuse. This 3-year project, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, #LG-06-14-0122-14, covers the period from December 1, 2014 to November 30, 2017.
