Dr. Marcie Rock, Associate Professor in the Specialized Education Services (SES) Department, is featured in an article in Ed Week on bug-in-the ear-coaching, which in part discusses Dr. Rock’s work as a preeminent scholar in this line of research.

Dr. Rock has also provided leadership with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to ensure teachers in the state of North Carolina and beyond have opportunities to improve their practice through bug-in-the-ear coaching technology.

The article states: “There are about a dozen states where bug-in-ear coaching is taking place, either at the preservice or in-service levels (or both), said Marcia Rock, one of the preeminent researchers in the field and an associate professor in the school of education at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

For about six years, Rock has been working with the North Carolina education department to scale up the bug-in-ear coaching across her state. This work is funded through a federal grant for improving instruction for students with disabilities.”
