Their collaboration focused on a core question: How can we foster greater student outcomes by shifting the lens towards student development?
Starting with a central premise, Dr. B and Hannah decided to dive into the depths of student-centered teaching. They recognized that traditional methods, while valuable, often focus too heavily on the teacher's performance without considering the true aim: student growth and learning.
It posed a significant challenge: how could they shift their attention and efforts to foster student outcomes directly? In other words, they sought to redefine their teaching and mentoring relationship, centering it around the question, "Are the students developing skills?" This transformation demanded a tool that could facilitate their collaboration, track their progress, and empower them with feedback and goal setting - that's where Bullseye came into the picture.
