TORSH Talent for Higher Education

Want to embed 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 teacher development platform to allow for full integration of video and other digital artifacts into teacher education programs. Using innovative 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 observation, feedback and coaching tools. Additionally, for faculty involved in ongoing research, TORSH Talent is a safe and secure repository which allows research participants to authorize and share videos and other files with researchers in ways that satisfy a range of research privacy laws.

“TORSH Talent has been instrumental in the instruction and support we provide our Harvard Teacher Fellows at-a-distance. With our Fellows in their Teacher Residencies across the country during the Fall and Spring, TORSH Talent is a powerful tool that allows our faculty to deliver video based coaching, calibrate with onsite mentors, and seamlessly align instruction in our courses with the experiences in the field.”
