4:00 Seminar teacher preparation and teacher evaluation in G106 Stone Bldg
In this seminar, Dr. Marder will discuss the dominant teacher education reform proposals, and provide evidence taken from international, national, and state data systems about their plausible effectiveness. Finally he will consider why we have settled on observational rather than test-score-based measurement of UTeach graduate performance and present some results of the observations.
