Teacher Educators Among ‘Who’s Who’ in NBPTS Conference Lineup
A March conference being hosted by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) includes a veritable “who’s who” of speakers in its ambitious program that includes several faculty from AACTE member institutions.
Deborah Loewenberg Ball of the University of Michigan, Linda Darling-Hammond of Stanford University (CA), Andy Hargreaves of Boston College (MA), Mark Ginsberg of George Mason University (VA), James Hennessy of Fordham University (NY), Pedro Noguera of New York University, Robert Pianta of the University of Virginia, and other teacher educators will join dozens of other representatives from various education circles at “Teaching & Learning 2014” in Washington, DC.
Sharing the stage at the star-studded event will be Barnett Berry, Charlotte Danielson, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Bobby McFerrin, Pasi Sahlberg, Dennis Van Roekel, Randi Weingarten, and other luminaries. Even the local cultural scene is joining in, offering preconference workshops at Ford’s Theatre, the Hirshhorn Museum, the Library of Congress, various Smithsonian sites, and more.
NBPTS President & CEO Ronald Thorpe said the conference, to be held March 14-15, aims to bring together the entire PK-12 profession. “The purpose is to remember what the true stakes are in education and to shape—together—what this profession can and deserves to be,” he said.
