AACTE Radio Show Partner Offers Promotion for Members


AACTE has partnered with Education Talk Radio for more than a year to broadcast interviews about the success and innovation in educator preparation. Through monthly episodes, AACTE member institutions, partners, and staff have been featured on the online radio show, which reaches over 70,000 listeners each month, to highlight their work on a variety of topics, including combating teacher shortages, creating a diverse teaching workforce, and building strong university-school partnerships for clinical practice initiatives. (View the complete lineup of recordings of AACTE interviews on the radio show in recap blogs here.)

Larry Jacobs, president and show host of Education Talk Radio, is a graduate of an educator preparation program and a strong advocate for the profession. “I believe the work of teacher preparation is critical to producing high-quality teachers,” Jacob said. “With so many colleges of education facing a decline in enrollment, I would like to offer my show as a platform to promote the good work that happens at these institutions.”

To help AACTE members promote their programs to the radio show’s audience of engaged teachers and administrators, Jacobs is offering a discounted rate for web advertisements, editorials, and featured programming on the air. AACTE members are invited to bring faculty and administrators onto the show for lively discussions about the great work your program is doing.

“AACTE is committed to amplifying the voices and work of its member institutions to lead the narrative in educator preparation,” said AACTE Vice President Rodrick Lucero. “We strongly value our partnership with Education Talk Radio to help us realize this goal and for its continual support and focus on the positive impact that teacher educators make every day.”

For more information about how to take advantage of the special radio show offering, contact Jacobs at 978-712-8187 or edutalklarry@gmail.com. You can also meet him in person at the AACTE Annual Meeting in Baltimore this week, where Jacobs will be hosting live show featuring AACTE leaders, session presenters, researchers, and PK-12 school administrators.
