RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Eastern Kentucky University has received a grant for an innovative mentoring program for students preparing to become classroom teachers.
The program will enable EKU students who are presenting lessons in some area schools to be technologically linked to a professor on the Richmond campus. Watching in their offices, the university’s faculty member can relay helpful tips to the EKU students.
EKU’s College of Education recently received the $10,000 grant from The Fund for Transforming Education in Kentucky.
As part of the program, about 20 students completing clinical teaching experiences will be paired with faculty this fall.
Schools that agree to participate will be outfitted with audio and video technology.
