Observing Graduate Interns Remotely
Kappa Delta Pi Record Volume 47, Number 1, ISSN 0022-8958
While recent downsizing and layoffs have been devastating in many school districts across the nation, other areas of the country continue to face teacher shortages as they struggle to fill positions with highly qualified professionals. In these areas, the overwhelming need for teachers continues to grow, making it imperative for teacher preparation programs to find alternative means for licensing teachers and to seek innovative ways to attract and recruit second-career professionals to teaching. These goals require new approaches to current practices, course offerings, and program structures. One college of education at a large southern urban university is meeting these needs through a fully online teacher preparation program created to overcome geographic boundaries. The program is configured to reach high-needs, remote areas where teacher shortages are critical and to attract high-quality second-career STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) professionals to the teaching profession. Innovative strategies and technology come together in this initiative for teacher training. The authors discuss the program called Remote Observation of Graduate Interns (ROGI) and explain its use and benefits. The impetus for creating this program as well as its components and experience are also discussed.
