NYU Steinhardt Plans Online Teacher Residency Program - Michael Hart, Campus Technology

The New York University Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development plans to introduce a residency-based online teacher education program that students — teacher interns — can complete virtually. The program, if approved by state representatives, will combine online coursework with immersive on-site experiences as the students work toward a graduate degree. The program is targeting teacher residencies in high-needs schools — those in which new teachers often report a lack of adequate preparation and high attrition rates. Students will be mentored by NYU faculty, who will be able to use video technology to observe classroom instruction at a distance and work one on one with students to improve their teaching skills.
