AACTE Video Observation Technology Implementation Grant Program
AACTE understands that the rapidly changing context for teaching during Covid-19 is creating new challenges for ensuring a high-quality teacher education experiences. This is why we are partnering with Edthena to enable grants for AACTE members to implement this research-proven video technology.
While we can’t know exactly what the Spring 2021 semester will bring for any of us, we can help you make a plan to ensure that your program is ready to quickly adapt by implementing the Edthena video observation and collaboration platform. In this time of challenge and need for everyone, we want to ensure that AACTE members have access to the best possible tools for training candidates.
Here are some of the ways the Edthena platform can help:
The AACTE and Edthena partnership will provide up to 20 programs with a grant up to $25,000 to implement Edthena for the upcoming Spring 2021 academic term.
We know you’ve got a lot on your plate. We’ve worked to streamline this process for you as much as possible.
To apply, you will fill out a brief application via a secure webform on the AACTE website. The questions are available in advance from the grant application page accessed via the button below.
We anticipate that the grant writing process can be completed in one hour or less. You will also need to plan to secure a letter of support from your program top-level decision maker, usually a Dean or Associate Dean.
