  6. Paper presented at the 2021 Annual Conference of the American Educational Research Association, as part of the symposium Opportunities and Challenges Associated with Approximations of Practice in Teacher Education Programs In 1964, Canadian philosopher Marshall McLuhan proposed a then-radical idea in media theory: We should study not only content of messages, but also the impact of the medium itself, on society. He captured this idea in the phrase: The medium is the message. We take this idea into the study of teachers’ approximations of practice. We ask: Can the creation medium impact teachers’ approximation of practice, especially their recomposition of practice? The purpose of the study reported in this paper is to investigate differences in how prospective teachers may decompose and recompose practice during video and written approximations of practice. By written approximation of practice, we refer to a response to an assignment such as producing (parts of) a lesson plan; by video approximation of practice, we refer to a response to an assignment such as video recording oneself responding to a (hypothetical) student.
