Twitter Chat Provides Preview of Clinical Practice Commission Report
In a Twitter chat last week, members of the AACTE Clinical Practice Commission discussed how effective clinical educator preparation produces profession-ready teachers, sharing key points from the commission’s findings over the past 2 years. The nearly 80 tweets at #AACTEcpc yielded more than 108,000 impressions during the lively conversation led by Susan Adams (Butler University, IN), Jennifer Roth (Poudre School District, CO), Laurie Henry (University of Kentucky), Marcy Keifer-Kennedy (Ohio University), Rene Roselle (University of Connecticut), Diane Fogarty (Loyola Marymount University, CA), Rod Lucero (AACTE), and moderator Amanda Lester (AACTE).
Participants discussed the purpose of the AACTE Clinical Practice Commission, the importance of clinical practice in teacher preparation, the role of clinical partnerships, and how the soon-to-be-released report of the commission will help inform the practice of the entire education community.
