JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, April 5, 2016 - Torsh, an educational software company that provides a video observation platform used for teacher professional development, will present on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at the 27th International Conference on College Teaching and Learning (ICCTL). This year’s conference, with a theme of “Building Bridges: Teaching Our Communities—Engaging the World,” is being held from April 4-7 in Jacksonville, Florida. This annual higher education symposium brings together professors, faculty and support staff and offers a variety of workshops, presentations and interactive sessions.
Torsh’s presentation will touch on this year’s theme by demonstrating how its prominent higher education clients use Torsh’s video platform to improve teacher training and in turn, improve student outcomes. Case studies will include Stanford University’s Hollyhock Fellowship Program, Johns Hopkins University’s Teach for America National Program and Tuft University's’ Urban Math and Science Teacher Collaborative.
Torsh’s main product is TALENT, an easy to use video-based classroom observation tool and data management platform. With Torsh TALENT, educators are given the opportunity to reflect on practice, collaborate among peers and coaches, measure the effectiveness of their classroom instruction, and receive high quality coaching.
“We are excited to highlight how colleges and universities are using video to train teachers, and transform instruction,” stated James Jackson, Manager of Business Development at Torsh. “We are presenting at ICCTL because we want to share this knowledge with other leaders in the field. Video is relatively new to higher education. We will demonstrate how it can be implemented successfully.”
