Our higher ed pilots are part of a larger, extensive, and coherent approach to teacher effectiveness for early-career and established educators.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) March 30, 2011
RANDA Solutions has announced the expansion of their successful K12 Teacher Observation Pilot Program to provide 360-degree observations of students in institutions of higher learning. The program is intended to field-test RANDA's system and application, gathering input from participating universities for improvements and data for impact studies.
RANDA Chief Strategy Officer Randall Dennis comments, "Our higher ed pilots are part of a larger, extensive, and coherent approach to teacher effectiveness for early-career and established educators."
RANDA has been meeting with several university leaders in education to assess the natural progression from student to field-ready educators. The result is a comprehensive system based on RANDA's patent-pending teacher observation system and mobile platform.
Seven institutions of higher learning will be selected from applicants who register at: http://www.randasolutions.com/higher-ed-observation, or call 615.915.5410. Deadline for applications is April 15, 2011 and winners will be announced May 15th. While the institutions must provide their own iPads, the seven pilots are offered at no cost to the universities.
"This builds on our experience in the K12 space," says Dennis. "it augments our K12 model on the system end while leveraging the same mobile extension of the system we've developed for iPads. We're eager to see it in the higher ed terrain and to evaluate the input we'll receive from higher ed pilot participants."
