Tags: boerst, teacher education


Timothy Boerst was named to the Certification Council of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The Council was established by the Board of Directors to guide implementation and evaluation of National Board’s certification program. This year, the Council is undertaking an assessment redesign driven by a need to incorporate advances in research and policy in teaching. The redesigned assessment will integrate stronger evidence of student learning and achievement, incorporate measures of student perception, and refine the use of video as a measure of effective practice. It also will make the assessment more flexible for teachers, a condition integral to scaling National Board Certification. The Council will also work to launch revision of their Career and Technical Education Standards this fall, a timely activity given the current efforts in college- and career-readiness for K-12 students.
