Teachscape and Saba have announced that they have formed an alliance to offer joint customers a unique, competency-based integrated talent management platform, designed to support the development of effective teaching practice throughout the career lifecycle of educators.
Through this alliance, Teachscape has combined its online observer training and assessment system, tools for conducting in-classroom and video-based observations, and online professional development content with Saba's solutions, including learning and talent management, as well as enterprise social networking. This new platform is specifically designed to support personalized professional development, track educator performance, and manage educator career paths
The new platform available through this alliance includes a teaching evaluation system that joins together classroom observation and student achievement data with other measures of teaching performance and aligns Teachscape's classroom-based video content with the multiple measures evaluation system to support individualized professional development plans for every educator. School districts can also integrate their own online professional development resources via the learning management system. In addition, teachers can tap into professional learning communities with the enterprise social networking features made available on the new platform.
