The University of Findlay will be one of the only Ohio institutions to offer a preparatory workshop this fall for beginning teachers who are required to take the Ohio Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA).
Teachers begin their careers with four-year resident educator licenses, according to the Ohio Department of Education, which administers the assessment. During that time, they must complete all four years of the Ohio Resident Educator program and successfully pass the RESA to qualify for a five-year professional license.
UF’s six-week course, which students can take at their own pace, will prepare teachers for RESA Tasks 1-4. It will be conducted online during the fall semester. Nicole Williams, Ph.D., assistant professor of education and a master coder and assessor, will serve as the facilitator. Williams will highlight new RESA rubrics and adjustments.
Those who wish to enroll must apply as a non-degree student with the online graduate application, and provide transcripts and other information. For more information and instructions on how to apply, visit UF’s Educator Workshops page.
The Ohio Department of Education’s RESA information can be found here.
Workshop questions can be directed to Gwynne Rife, Ph.D., professor of biological sciences, education and chair of Advanced Professional Programs, at 419-434-4724 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
