Verifier Question in Email

What do I do if I receive an extraordinary number of capstones as we approach the deadline?


If you are bombarded with capstones on any given day and start to see a backlog of items that need to be verified (especially for those of you who are individually verifying a skill: Navigate, Create and Evaluate), please email Joyce and she will assist you with verification. We want to continue to provide consistent, thorough feedback in a timely manner to participants. Joyce is happy to assist you during the high submission periods.

New Role for Verifiers

We will be discussing the new vision for TOOL verifiers in more detail at the PLS. Verifiers are a valued part of Teacher Quality. You are in the initial mentors to those completing the their training for online teaching. As you are verifying, if you come across a tool or technique in a participants blog that you think would be a best practice for GaVS instructors, please take a screenshot and email to Joyce. Please provide a written description of the tool/technique and ways you envision online instructors using it in their virtual classrooms. Your submissions will be shared at faculty meetings and in the weekly teacher email. TQ appreciates your dedication and wants to share your outstanding leadership with our faculty. Please do not hesitate to share. TQ would like to highlight your hard work weekly if possible.

Heather does an outstanding job of noting specific items found within the participant's blog. She selects insightful quotes that speak to the participant's teaching philosophy and interests. Heather also adds her own voice within the feedback by commenting on areas where she agrees with the participant's blog. Heather's overall organization of the feedback is neat and encouraging. Well done Heather!
