Learn How to Collaborate with Your AACTE Colleagues

Arrows | Initiate. Collaborate. DiscussAre you interested in connecting with colleagues that share your interests and have similar areas of expertise? If so, AACTE encourages you to join one of our Topical Action Groups (TAGs). TAGs are AACTE action-oriented working groups that focus on areas such as accreditation, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), elementary education, research in teacher preparation, international education, and women in leadership–just to name a few. In addition to collaborating with your peers, AACTE provides TAGs with operational funds, marketing and staff support, and complimentary meeting space at the AACTE Annual Meeting. AACTE currently supports over 15 TAGs:
  • All Things Accreditation
  • Collaborative Clinical Preparation
  • Community-Engaged Teacher Preparation
  • Coteaching in Clinical Practice
  • Creating Transformative Inclusive Educators for All Students
  • Department Heads, Chairs, and Directors
  • Diversified Teaching Workforce: Recruitment and Retention
  • Diversifying and Increasing the Teacher Pipeline through Community Colleges and Two-Year Institutions
  • HBCU Teacher Education
  • Improving Practices in STEM Educator Preparation
  • Internationalization of Teacher Education
  • LGBTQ Advocacy and Inclusion in Teacher Education
  • Online Teaching and Learning
  • Preparing Educators of English Learners
  • Preparing Teachers for Rural Schools and Communities
  • Research in Teacher Preparation
  • Teacher Performance Assessment: Research and Application
  • Urban Education
  • Women in Leadership
All individuals from an AACTE member institution can join—this includes all students, faculty, and staff.  To join, please visit the TAG homepage, select the TAG you would like to join, then select “Request access.” TAGs are just one of the many benefits of an AACTE membership. Members also have access to the AACTE resource library featuring free downloadable webinars, toolkits, and research studies, a complimentary subscription to the Journal of Teacher Education (JTE), access to the members-only directory to connect with peers, the opportunity to have your voice heard by participating in AACTE elections, and many more volunteer opportunities. For additional information about TAGs and other membership benefits, please contact membership@aacte.org.
