Westminster College will be teaming up with a Pittsburgh non-profit to help train education students for virtual tutoring and instruction for K-12 students.
That announcement was made Friday to work with ASSET Inc.
The college will be a partner for ASSET’s PALS (Partnerships to Advance Learning in STEM) program, which benefited from $275,000 in state funding, and a $48,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission.
ASSET executive director Sarah Toulouse said pre-service teachers, or college students, will be instructed, and gain real-world field experience, in how to properly instruct students in a virtual setting.
