This program seeks to bring education professionals together online to share effective practices that they use in their programs. Lehman presented the reasons behind ONU's decision to use remote observation technology rather than hiring outside contractors to observe our student teachers. Crosser told participants about observations that have taken place in locations in Europe. Crawford discussed the various technological platforms that can be used to accomplish these observations.
