Online Learning Series: Taking Educator Preparation to the Next Level

UPPI Learning Series

The Wallace Foundation’s University Principal Preparation Initiative (UPPI), which supports universities redesigning their principal preparation programs, has never been more important to students and communities. In addition to creating and sustaining efforts to improve equity and academic achievement for their students, school principals are navigating unprecedented changes to the way teaching and learning occurs.

AACTE invites you to join us as we continue to participate in the national conversation about principal preparation redesign through UPPI’s online learning series, “Taking Education Preparation to the Next Level.”  

The five-session series, brought to you by The Wallace Foundation’s UPPI Network, in coordination with the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), will provide university/college principal preparation faculty within and beyond the UPPI network some important, collaborative tools and practical ideas on ways to support principal preparation and pipelines. Through the five-part series, national experts provide 45-minute, interactive sessions that address the following questions:

  • How can principals lead schools focused on equity and academic improvement now and in the future?
  • How can universities engage with partners to develop and sustain principal preparation programs to meet future challenges?

All are invited to attend the 45-minute interactive sessions facilitated by national experts.  These sessions, described below, provide ideas and tools to advance leadership preparation, and foster improved collaboration between teacher and principal preparation. 
After each session, UPPI members will continue meeting for 45-minutes in separate, facilitated discussion sessions.

Participation in the learning series is free and space is limited.  Register here for any and all of the sessions described below.
