AACTE Survey Results: How Does Your Program Compare to Others?
If there is one thing we can all agree on, 2020 has been a year like no other. To learn how COVID-19 and the racial injustice crisis have impacted educator preparation—and the steps EPPs are taking in response—AACTE conducted a survey this fall of its members. Here are a just a few of the findings:
- More than half of the respondents are using instructional designers to help faculty create online courses, and 75% have made new tools available such as simulations and video libraries.
- Only have of respondents reported that their state had modified or waived performance assessment requirements due to COVID-19.
- 60% of respondents reported declines in undergraduate enrollment.
- 70% of respondents have recently increased their investment in diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
To learn more, join your colleagues at a webinar on Wednesday, November 18 from 4:00 – 5:00 pm ET. The survey asked AACTE members about the impact of COVID-19 on instruction, field experiences, enrollment, budgets, and more. It also examined how EPPs are responding to increased calls for racial justice and equity.
