Research-to-Practice Spotlight Series
This video compilation documents AACTE member institutions' exemplary clinical partnerships and practices. Filmed during visits to campuses across the country, the videos capture interviews with deans, faculty, teacher candidates, school principals, teachers, and PK-12 students to illustrate various aspects and outcomes of developing and sustaining successful clinical partnerships.
In addition to learning about these institutions' common focus on clinical practice and mutually beneficial partnerships, viewers will discover the ways they have thoughtfully addressed the needs of their local context while upholding a high standard for teacher preparation. The spotlight series aims to not only celebrate successful programs but also provide models of exemplary practice for those who are in the nascent stages of partnership formation or who need fresh ideas to renew their current work. You may use the Research-to-Practice Spotlights as both an informational resource and as an instructional tool for your programs and partners.
