AACTE Launches New Online Community

AACTE is excited to introduce AACTE Connect360, an engaging and interactive online community that will link individual educators from its 700 member institutions to bring educator preparation full circle. Attendees at the AACTE 2021 Annual Meeting, February 24-26, will be among the first to preview the latest, members-only resource, designed for members to start discussions, share best practices, and ask and respond to questions of their colleagues on topics that impact educator preparation and the profession.

AACTE is the leading resource for the ed prep community, and with AACTE Connect360 members will facilitate more active discussions and fill a need for program-specific, peer-to-peer support within educator preparation. The digital, collaborative platform will also allow members on the AACTE Board of Directors, on committees, in Topical Action Groups, and in the Holmes Program to stay connected, share files, and store resources within their dedicated communities.

Will you be at this year’s AACTE Annual Meeting? Stop by the virtual Conference Community Center to tour the platform and learn more about how the newest member benefit will assist you in maintaining professional connections beyond the annual conference. The AACTE team will be available to answer your questions and guide you through the online community.

AACTE will roll out AACTE Connect360 to the full membership over the next few months. Stay tuned for more information on how you can log on and enjoy access to member-to-member support and resources year-round.
