Teaching Teachers at Penn: Mentoring Programs
by Larry Robbins and Herb Levine Recent Almanac articles have described important efforts to improve teaching at Penn. The University is clearly interested in creating an environment that promotes effective teaching and learning. One such initiative involves the concept of mentoring. A mentoring program has existed for over five years at Wharton and has subsequently been extended to SEAS and some departments in SAS. Two and half years ago, the chair of the Economics Department created a departmental mentoring program. The basic aim of a mentoring program is to enable teachers to observe their own techniques of instruction and to make appropriate changes. The mentoring program has three components: 1) an exploratory conversation about teaching issues important to the instructor; 2) videotaping of a class; and 3) a discussion between mentor and teacher about the videotaped class. Some of the individuals who participate in the mentoring program believe or have been told that they have some kind of problem. An effective mentoring relationship will certainly deal with problems but should also address some generic issues of teaching: for example, how to create a syllabus that encourages learning within a discipline and how to present intellectual material in a way that stimulates students to think analytically. While the class is being videotaped by a cameraperson, the mentor takes notes on the process of teaching: how and how soon the class begins, interaction between teacher and class, cross-talk among students, general organization including summaries and transitions, the way the class ends and, of course, presentation skills. When viewing the tape, the teacher is asked to make similar notes, concentrating both on organization and presentation.

Effective Teaching in Distance Education. ERIC Digest.
In its original form, teachers using distance education traveled to remote sites and taught a class, or corresponded with students through mail, telephone, or fax machine. Individualized study has been a method of reaching the remote student for some time. Detailed course instructions are sent to the learner who performs the assigned tasks and returns the completed work to the teacher for evaluation and reassignment if necessary. Technology has raised the quality of individualized distance instruction. The use of various forms of electronic media increases time effectiveness and improves the delivery of information. Video, audio, and computer-based applications may enhance the product received by the independent learner. Electronic delivery can occur using synchronous communication, in which class members participate at the same time, or asynchronous communication where participants are separated by time (Romiszowski, 1993).

So you want to be an instructor?
Becoming an instructor takes much more than being a competent rider or skier. We look for those who are effective communicators and have a knowledge of teaching and learning theory, Biomechanics and Kinesisiology, and human developments.
Do you value Professionalism in the workplace? Are you patient? Do you get along with other people, even if they think and act differently than you do? Can you stand to be in the cold for extended periods of time? Do you have a passion for your sport?
If you are ready to take the next step toward a career in teaching, take a look at a typical day in the life of a ski/snowboard instructor:
Wake up, commute to the mountain. The farther away you live from the mountain, the earlier you must rise-and-shine. The successful instructors know that it is better to get to the area earlier than needed, than to get stuck behind a string of school busses (especially when it is snowing!) Daily meeting with staff. Not required, but highly recommended. Meeting covers daily/weekly events, group arrivals, snow/weather conditions, and daily assignments.

Effective Teaching Award Recipients
Outstanding faculty members are sought out and recognized for their effective teaching. Each year, members of the Academy for Effective Teaching meet with classes representing all departments on campus to solicit student nominations of their most effective teachers. Finalists in the nomination process are invited to submit teaching portfolios which are then evaluated by Academy members. Each of the faculty members selected for this award receives public recognition at the annual Honors Convocation. They are also awarded an increase to their base salary so that the award continues. The faculty members listed below have been recognized for their abilities to teach effectively.
The good teacher is one whose students learn and change.

Physical Therapy Engaging his students in the learning process is Barb's highest teaching priority. Because he prepares students to be teachers themselves for a variety of learnerspatients, family members, students, and peershe strives to be a good role model both inside and outside the classroom. "My learners have always been able to feel my passion for my subject matter, and I have seen them become excited as well, when they recognize its importance in their personal and professional lives. To be recognized by one's peers as an excellent teacher is an honor; however, to be nominated and supported by one's learners, I believe, is the greatest award a teacher can recieve."

51. Teaching To Overcome Dyslexia In The Dyslexia Institute
We teach in ways that dyslexic pupils can learn. Regular Inservice days keep ourteachers abreast of new, effective teaching methods and current research.
The Dyslexia Institute's 25 centres, located throughout the UK, and more than 125 outposts and in-school units provide specialist teaching for children and adults. Our teachers receive considerable in-service training to keep them at the 'leading edge'. Lessons are normally for one to three hours each week, taken on the same or different days, depending on the age and needs of the student. Two (Duo lessons) or three (Trio lessons) students will usually be working in the room, each following his or her own individual programme. Sometimes they will be working with the teacher, and sometimes doing practice work on their own, using a variety of aids to assist their learning, including computers. Many centres also offer study skills groups, adult groups and mathematics lessons. There is widespread agreement that teaching for dyslexic children and adults should be:
  • STRUCTURED - so reading and spelling make sense.
  • CUMULATIVE - to build up skills gradually.
  • MULTI-SENSORY - using sight, sound and touch.
  • THOROUGH - over-learning to compensate for weak memory.

Developing Effective Technology Plans
John See
Technology Integration Specialist
Minnesota Department of Education Effective technology plans are short term, not long term. Five year plans are too long. Technology is changing so fast that it is almost impossible to plan what type of technology will be available for use five years from now. Even one year plans may now be about as far ahead as effective planning for purchases of certain types or brands of equipment can take place. If a long-term plan is derived, tie it to the district's budget cycle. Pull the plan out every year during the budget process and review it to make sure the plan has not tied your school into buying outdated equipment. Do not let a technology plan lock you into old technology and applications just because it says so in the plan. Newer, more powerful, lower cost technology may be available to replace what is specified in a five year old plan. Effective technology plans focus on applications, not technology. In other words, make your technology plan outcome-based, not input-based. Develop a plan that specifies what students, staff, and administration should be able to do with technology and let those outcomes determine the types and amount of technology your plan requests.

Project Summary

The University of the Arts proposes to increase the proficiency of its pre-service teachers in using technology to improve teaching and learning. As a result of this initiative, by Spring 2000 participating pre-service teachers will possess the following minimum technology competencies:
  • To create digital tools to develop and deliver more effective educational content for teaching in the arts using the "Design for Thinking" model and technology;
  • To develop and use interactive media and web sites for individualized instruction, research, and content delivery;
  • To use distance learning and video conferencing for shared resources and peer teaching;
  • To acquire strategies for portfolio and performance assessment using on-line portfolios for faculty and mentor analysis.

These competencies comprise knowledge and skills required for emergent teachers in the arts and are directed to supporting effective teaching of Commonwealth academic standards in applicable disciplines.
These competencies will support effective teaching of the emergent Pennsylvania academic standards in the arts and humanities for grades K-12.

"Often in book reviews one sees the comment that a book should be required reading for a given field. Often the implications of ignoring that comment are negligible (an anonymous reviewer of your next article might suggest adding the book to your footnotes!). This book, however, with its clearly stated connections between research findings and their ramifications, indeed should be required reading for administrators and faculty at any stage of their careers. Many of the studies' results should be made known to students. The results of ignoring such research and discussions of its implications are felt far beyond the narrow field of specialists in higher education research and are all too familiar at many universities."

While nothing teach For America can do will firm evaluates our corps members' teachingperformance by On 23 key indicators of effective teaching, ranging from
Teach For America corps members face all the challenges encountered by first-year teachers anywhere. They must learn how to manage classes of students, plan for their instruction, assess their students’ progress, and so on, and they must learn to work effectively with the administrators and teachers in their unique schools. On top of all this, corps members face even greater challenges than new teachers who are not working in under-resourced areas. They see all the challenges of poverty play out in their classrooms, and in order to be successful they must go above and beyond traditional expectations to help their students tackle them. While nothing Teach For America can do will make the challenge of teaching in an under-resourced area easy, we have developed a training program over time that is geared toward helping you learn what has worked for successful teachers in urban and rural areas. Moreover, we offer access to a strong regional support network that many corps members have found to be invaluable in their success.
“It is without reservation that I endorse Teach For America as an organization that has already contributed significantly to our ongoing quest for student success, and will continue to play a vital part in the realization of our mission to make dramatic gains in every student ’s achievement.”

But then, to teach scientific reasoning as a set should be the main purpose of scienceteaching. to clarify thinking and promote effective communication, then
Although Science for All Americans emphasizes what students should learn, it also recognizes that how science is taught is equally important. In planning instruction, effective teachers draw on a growing body of research knowledge about the nature of learning and on craft knowledge about teaching that has stood the test of time. Typically, they consider the special characteristics of the material to be learned, the background of their students, and the conditions under which the teaching and learning are to take place.
Learning Is Not Necessarily an Outcome of Teaching Cognitive research is revealing that even with what is taken to be good instruction, many students, including academically talented ones, understand less than we think they do. With determination, students taking an examination are commonly able to identify what they have been told or what they have read; careful probing, however, often shows that their understanding is limited or distorted, if not altogether wrong. This finding suggests that parsimony is essential in setting out educational goals: Schools should pick the most important concepts and skills to emphasize so that they can concentrate on the quality of understanding rather than on the quantity of information presented.
