How Should Blended Learning Schools be Hiring and Training Teachers?


A recent working paper paper by the Teaching New Teachers Project provides some real insight on how the role of the teacher is changing as we move toward a more universal acceptance of individualized and blending learning. 

While this paper may be short on addressing a concern of blended learning critics that there is no consistency on how to measure student learning, it offers insight on how the development and hiring of teachers should be shifted. Of particular note, new teachers should have the capacity to be Researchers, Integrators and Guides.
