Torsh TALENT for Higher Education

Want to embed video observations into coursework for your student teachers?

Now Higher Education faculty and administrators can create online portfolios of student work in the classroom for both pre-service and in-service teacher education programs. Through Torsh TALENT, Higher Education institutions can integrate current curriculum and Learning Management Systems with an online video platform to allow for full integration of video into teacher education programs. Using innovative video technology, faculty, coaches, and supervisors are able to remotely observe pre-service and in-service teachers in the classroom and provide feedback with a suite of video based observation, feedback and coaching tools. Additionally, for faculty involved in ongoing research, Torsh TALENT is a safe and secure video repository which allows research participants to authorize and share videos with researches in ways that satisfy a range of research privacy laws.

"Talent makes a significant impact with the Stanford Hollyhock Fellowship Program because participating teacher fellows have significantly improved their classroom practice by having the opportunity to share and tag videos with each other and their instructional coaches. Talent is easy to use, so the focus can be on observing and reflecting on the teacher practice and the student learning. We highly recommend Talent to other programs supporting teachers in transformative growth.”
