What's new at NCTR?
In NCTR’s continued partnership with 100Kin10, Associate Director Erica Hines is participating in an initiative that is examining how to diversify the STEM teacher recruitment pipeline. Erica’s team includes math and teacher education professors, school district administrators, and partnership directors for universities and nonprofits. At the end of its six-month effort, Erica’s group hopes to produce a white paper of evidence-based recruitment and pre-service strategies that result in a more diverse STEM teaching force. Erica will also build her own knowledge about recruiting diverse STEM teachers and take away learnings relevant to NCTR’s partners and programming.
Featured News Video Resource: Resident Recruitment and Selection
The recruitment and selection of residents is one of the most important components of a teacher residency. Selected candidates are the future teachers in a program’s community and district. Creating a rigorous, effective and measurable recruitment strategy is critical to the long-term success of any residency program.
Each week this month, NCTR is making available a new video on one aspect of an effective resident recruitment and selection process. Program partners in Colorado and Dallas sat down with NCTR to discuss their recruitment processes, how they ensure a strong pipeline of candidates, and the attributes they look for in applicants that lead to strong residents.
The resource library was funded through NCTR’s 2015 Supporting Effective Educator Development grant from the U.S. Department of Education. As part of our commitment to support a high quality network of teacher residencies and to share the best practices and lessons learned with the teacher preparation field, these videos are being made available to members of the NCTR Network of teacher residencies and other educators and advocates.
Coming next month, we’ll release four videos on the recruitment and selection of mentors and teacher educators.
