Be a Champion for Change at AACTE’S 74th Annual Meeting in New Orleans

This past year has undoubtedly presented our nation’s education system with many hurdles, including the pandemic, remote learning challenges, climbing teacher shortages, student learning loss, and so much more. While we may have weathered the worst of the health crisis, much more needs to be done in overcoming the destruction it left in its wake. That’s why it is more important than ever to attend next year’s AACTE Annual Meeting. Be a champion for change by joining us in person in New Orleans, March 4-6, 2022, as we “Rethink, Reshape, Reimagine, and Revolutionize: Growing Our Profession Post Pandemic.”


The Annual Meeting provides a forum for you to engage in meaningful discussions, share research and practices, and become better equipped to drive change in the educator preparation field. Join the conversation among our nation’s education leaders through nearly 200 interactive learning opportunities organized around four Session Strands in a range of formats:

  • Strand I: Preparing Educators In and For the Future
  • Strand II: Renewing Democracy through Activism and Collaboration
  • Strand III: Addressing Public Concerns for the Future of the Profession
  • Strand IV: Confronting the Challenges Facing our Programs and Institutions


Why should you attend? Don’t just take AACTE’s word for it; listen to what previous attendees think of the event. In our 2021 attendee survey, 95% of people recommended the Annual Meeting to others, and 97% said they plan to attend the 2022 event

We are not only looking forward to gathering together in person after a long hiatus but to do it in a fantastic city rich with culture that all can enjoy. New Orleans is famous as a melting pot of cultures, a wealth of unique heritage and proud traditions, and best known for its incredible jazz music, vibrant nightlife, and Creole and Cajun foods. When the Meeting is not in session, explore all that New Orleans has to offer!

Register today to take advantage of our early bird registration rate by November 22, and book your accommodations to join us in The Big Easy! All Annual Meeting events will occur in the New Orleans Marriott and the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel.
