From The Teachers Edition, newsletter of the U.S. Department of Education
The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) recently launched an initiative to strengthen educator preparation and support innovation in the professional community. The Innovation Exchange will serve as a forum to share findings for addressing the most urgent issues of student achievement, curriculum reform and educator preparation program advancement.
Key programs of the initiative include an Innovations Inventory for institutions to share promising practices, an Educator Workforce Advisory Task Force to improve retention of novice teachers in high-need schools, and a Networked Improved Community to increase Black and Hispanic males in teacher prep programs. Are you part of a research team interested in educator preparation? Apply for the AACTE Research Fellowship for Educator Preparation, due March 28.
