Education Week is offering a free, live webinar on improving teacher education programs across the country. The live webinar, moderated by Stephen Sawchuk of Education Week, will feature Deans Mari Koerner (Arizona State University) and Deborah Loewenberg Ball, (University of Michigan).
From Education Week:
University-based teacher education remains the engine of teacher preparation in the United States. Long criticized, it has come under increasing scrutiny in recent months—from outside reviewers, from the U.S. Department of Education, and even from accreditation bodies—all of whom are pushing for changes. This webinar will introduce participants to the approaches taken by two teacher education schools to make the student-teaching experience more relevant and to emphasize the specific teaching skills the teachers they produce are expected to acquire and demonstrate.
The Webinar was held on Thursday, December 8, 12:00-1:00pm ET. To view the recorded event, register at the following link:
