AACTE’s Annual Meeting is well regarded for providing a variety of educational opportunities that address the broad scope of critical issues faced by educator preparation institutions. This year, three moderated Major Forum panel sessions will aim at the very core of our work: educating tomorrow’s educators. These “Examining Professional Practice” sessions have been developed to provide attendees with thoughtful analysis of current topics.
In addition to the Major Forum announced October 17 (“Examining Professional Practice: Evolving Notions of Beginning Teacher Competencies”), this series will feature the following two panel discussions:
Examining Professional Practice: Preparing Candidates for the Common Core State Standards
Preparation programs have begun to integrate the Common Core State Standards, to varying degrees, into their curriculum. The panel will share efforts under way to prepare teacher candidates to teach the common core standards and efforts to align preparation programs with systems of professional learning.
Presenters: Kenji Hakuta, Stanford University; Ann Larson, University of Louisville; Thomasina Adams, University of Florida
Moderator: Rick Melmer, University of South Dakota
Examining Professional Practice: Preparing Educators for 21st-Century Learners
The National Research Council’s recent report, Education for Life and Work, presents a current and well-researched consideration of what learning and assessment ought to be in today’s classrooms. Panelists will outline the major findings in the report and discuss implications for preparation programs.
Presenters: James Pellegrino, University of Illinois Chicago; Kent McGuire, Southern Education Foundation
Moderator: Paula Cordeiro, University of San Diego
