Goodwin to Speak at AACTE Welcoming Session
AACTE is pleased to announce a new speaker for the 67th Annual Meeting Welcoming Session. A. Lin Goodwin of Teachers College, Columbia University, will join Marc Tucker of the National Center on Education and the Economy at this kick-off general session, Friday, February 27, at noon.
Linda Darling-Hammond of Stanford University, originally scheduled to speak at the session with Tucker, is no longer able to attend the conference.
Goodwin brings her extensive experience in international education reform to this keynote duet for a thought-provoking discussion of economic imperatives and successful systems of educator preparation around the world.
Goodwin is Evenden Professor of Education and vice dean at Teachers College, Columbia University. She currently serves as vice president of the American Educational Research Association’s Division K (Teaching and Teacher Education) and is codirector (and architect) of a joint master’s program in educational leadership and change between Teachers College and the National Institute of Education in Singapore. She was recently awarded a $7.5 million Teacher Quality Partnership grant from the U.S. Department of Education to support her second teaching residency program, TR@TC2 (Teaching Residents at Teachers College 2).
Goodwin’s research and writing focus on the connections between teachers’ and teacher educators’ identities and their development and between multicultural understandings and curriculum enactments; on the particular issues facing Asian and Asian American teachers and students in U.S. schools; and on international analyses/comparisons of teacher education practice and policy.
