Revolutionizing Education: A Call for Stories
AACTE recently released its 2020-2023 Strategic Plan, which includes a new vision statement: AACTE, its members, and partners collaborate to revolutionize education for all learners. Aligned with the new strategic plan, Ed Prep Matters is launching a new column called Revolutionizing Education to showcase the many ways the Association and member institutions are moving beyond traditional perspectives and are pioneering positive change in educator preparation.
The Revolutionizing Education column is an opportunity for member institutions and partners to share the leading-edge research, models, strategies, programs, and initiatives that focus on the three core values outlined in the new AACTE strategic plan:
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
- Quality and impact
- Inquiry and Innovation
This week, Maria Hyler of the Learning Policy Institute authored an Ed Prep Matters article inviting you to view the first in a series of webinars focusing on transformative research and practice in educator preparation—produced through a partnership between AACTE and the Educator Preparation Laboratory (EdPrepLab). The first webinar explores “Social and Emotional Learning, Cultural Competence, and Equity in Teacher Preparation.”
In the coming months, we will roll out more stories like this one. These will illustrate how you—experts in the field of education preparation—are empowering the nation’s future teachers with culturally sensitive models of impact and revolutionary practices.
Would you like to share your institution’s story about your work in diversity, equity, inclusion, quality, impact, inquiry or innovation? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for upcoming articles highlighting approaches to revolutionizing education.
