Arizona State University – The College of Teacher Education & Leadership
invites applications for:

1) *Director* – Teacher Preparation Research and Evaluation Project
(T-PREP).

– Project Overview: Arizona State University, Northern Arizona
University, and the University of Arizona, in conjunction with school,
state, and business partners, and with support from the Arizona Community
Foundation (ACF), are developing an assessment model by which the
effectiveness of teachers prepared by ASU, NAU, and the UA can be
meaningfully assessed. The model will be used for formative assessment,
providing ongoing feedback to teacher preparation programs, teachers,
schools, and state policy makers. Although the project was initiated by the
three state public universities, the successful candidate will work within
ASU and in collaboration with the other teacher preparation institutions
across the state, including community colleges and private institutions.
– Position Description: Reporting to the Co-Principal Investigators, the
successful candidate will (1) manage research and evaluation projects; (2)
oversee graduate students who will collect and analyze data; (3) work with
CTEL faculty who will help conduct research and evaluation projects; (4)
work with the T-PREP Steering Committee in support of projects; and (6)
assist with maintaining and disseminating information on the T-PREP website.

2) *Director and Post-Doctoral Fellow* – Partnership Office for Research on
Teaching, Assessment, and Learning (PORTAL).

– Project Overview: In October 2009, CTEL received a $33.8 million grant
from the U.S. Department of Education Teacher Quality Partnership Grant
Program to continue to help them (1) restructure their teacher
certification programs, (2) expand their programs via its Professional
Development Schools (PDS) initiative, (3) upgrade the professionalism of
teacher training, (4) upgrade the selection process for future teachers, (5)
integrate teacher education programs into other colleges at the university,
and (6) recruit talented individuals from other colleges to become teachers.
One major component of this grant involves the development of the
Partnership Office for Research on Teaching, Assessment, and Learning
(PORTAL). The purpose of PORTAL is two fold: (1) Internal Accountability –
to hold CTEL accountable for the quality of its programs and the teachers it
graduates by tracking them into the field and measuring their effectiveness
years after they enter the profession, and (2) External Accountability – to
hold CTEL accountable for the impact it has on the larger community, which
will be fostered via research and evaluation partnerships with Arizona
school districts.
– Position Description: Reporting to the Co-Principal Investigators, the
successful candidate will (1) build and oversee partnerships with districts
and schools; (2) manage research and evaluation projects; (3) oversee
graduate students who will collect and analyze data; (4) work with CTEL
faculty who will help conduct research and evaluations; (5) work with
internal and external advisory boards in support of projects; and (6) assist
with maintaining and disseminating information on the PORTAL website.
