Listen to Latest Revolutionizing Education Podcast: Transforming Teacher Prep
Series one, episode five of the AACTE Podcast, Revolutionizing Education, is now available.
The latest episode features one of the largest Hispanic-Serving Institutions in the nation, the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV), embarking on a transformation of its teacher preparation program centered on the college mission, vision, and three priorities: quality, culture of inquiry, and positionality. In this episode, Sandra Musanti and Alma Rodriguez from UTRGV share what they have identified to be the three areas of emphasis to guide the transformation work: a practice-based teacher education model, culturally and linguistically sustaining pedagogies, and technology for the 21st century.
This episode is one of six in the first Revolutionizing Education podcast series highlighting case stories by AACTE members who presented at AACTE’s 73rd Annual Meeting.
The first four episodes are also available, covering how to discover and foster joy in teacher education, the stories of a community that made a huge impact on their local education system, a program working to diversify the teacher workforce by recruiting underrepresented minority high school students, and the story of an ed prep program undergoing challenges in preparing teacher candidates to enter the classroom.
Throughout the summer, AACTE is releasing biweekly episodes covering a variety of topics within the educator preparation community. Check out new episodes all summer long at aacte.org.
