Bank Street College of Education will launch a fully online fieldwork and advisement pilot for its graduate math education program. Currently, students in Bank Street’s Leadership in Mathematics Education master’s degree program take courses at the school’s New York campus each July over three years and perform their fieldwork at the schools they work at during the academic year. Work on adapting those courses to a distance-learning format has already begun, making the fieldwork and advisement piece “the final element needed to provide students the option of earning the master’s degree entirely online,” according to a news release about the pilot. Work on the new program, which will maintain a 7-1 student-to-advisor ratio, will begin in the fall, and the pilot will formally launch in the spring of 2014. In order to refine the program over the course of the pilot, math teachers will be connected “with Bank Street experts online over the course of a semester,” according to information released by the school.
