Company Line: * About UTRU o Leadership o Research & Publications o Frequently Asked Questions o Careers o Contact Us UTRU’s Core Values * We are a voluntary network built in service to the partners * We believe in building results-oriented programs with clear and measurable targets * We are committed to candid conversations, feedback and sharing and learning from our mistakes as much as from our successes * We focus on work best served by acting as a network rather than as individual programs * We believe in the core principles of the Residency model, but accept programmatic differences and strive to promote quality rather than particular tactics * Our network is rooted in collective knowledge and early results, and we believe others should have access to and learn from this work * We are committed to finding network-wide metrics that will allow us to speak a “common language” when sharing our results and impact Urban Teacher Residency United (UTRU) is a not-for-profit organization that serves a growing national network of innovative teacher preparation programs. Founded in 2007 with the financial backing of Strategic Grant Partners, UTRU works closely with school districts, not-for-profit organizations and universities to launch and support effective Urban Teacher Residencies. About Urban Teacher Residencies Based on the medical residency model, Urban Teacher Residencies are district-based education programs that pair master’s-level education coursework with a rigorous full-year classroom apprenticeship under the guidance of an experienced mentor teacher.
Bottom Line: Unlike the medical model, residents have not taken education courses, but are placed in classrooms with teachers to practice without requisite teaching knowledge.
