Globally, schools and teachers are facing a growing diversity in student populations, which is reflected in worldwide educational policies to implement more inclusive learning environments. According to the literature, (student) teachers need to be supported in their new role as facilitators of inclusion, as they play a major role in the success of these inclusive policies. As a consequence, an important step is to increase their ability to recognize and interpret effective teaching strategies in dealing with student diversity. This is conceptualized by Stürmer, Könings and Seidel (2013) as professional vision. Researchers have relied extensively on video as a means for studying professional vision. One way to study professional vision through video is the method of comparative judgement. However, the method of comparative judgement has not yet been applied to study (student) teachers’ professional vision through video. Therefore, the project “POTENTIAL– Power to teach All!” developed a video-based comparative judgement instrument to measure (student) teachers’ professional vision of inclusive classrooms, called the e-PIC tool.Two validation studies - an expert study and pilot study - took place to inquire the validity of the instrument. Results of both studies confirm the validity of the videography instrument to measure (student) teachers’ professional vision of inclusive classrooms in a standardized way. During an ICT demonstration on the Earli2017 conference the e-PIC tool is presented.
