May 8, 2012—Yesterday and today, the Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning is hosting a small group of school district administrators and higher education stakeholders from various local and national locations, including Kansas, New York, and Hawaii. These administrators represent districts who are early adopters of the Classroom Assessment Scoring System™ observational tool and the MyTeachingPartner™ coaching program.
“It has been our practice to solicit feedback from the people who use these tools at every stage of their development,” said Bridget Hamre, associate director of CASTL. “Especially now, as district begin to scale up the use of these tools, we need to fully understand district needs and how we can best support them.” This meeting brings researchers and educators together promoting CASTL’s mission to bridge research and practice throughout the educational system.
The meeting is funded by a grant from William T. Grant Foundation.
