One of the highlights of AACTE’s Annual Meeting are the “Deeper Dives.” These sessions provide a large-scale, expert-facilitated exploration of key issues facing the profession. Here’s a sneak peek at #AACTE22’s “Deeper Dive” sessions.

State Legislation: Youth, Censorship, and Academic Freedom         

In recent decades, educators have faced a push to censor the content of textbooks, resulting in works filled with degraded knowledge in service of the ideologies of pressure groups. Today, the culture wars have invaded the classroom to oppose the accurate teaching of American history. This deeper dive focuses on state legislation and policies used to promote the teaching of truth in the classroom.      

Colleges of Education and Community Colleges: Partners for Access, Diversity, and Excellence

Community colleges play essential roles in the preparation of future educators. Learn about new AACTE research on educator preparation at community colleges and hear from members who partner successfully with these educational institutions.

Strategies for Combating Racism and Censorship on Campus

Hate crimes and incidents of racial and gender bias have risen sharply on campuses in recent years. As a result, schools, colleges, and universities are taking bold steps to establish themselves as anti-racist institutions. Join this deeper dive to discuss with experts the strategies they use to successfully prevent and address racism and censorship on campus.    

Presidential Reflections: Leading Higher Education Through Extraordinary Times  

What has it been like to lead a university through the pandemic, and what will it take for higher education to fully recover? A panel of university presidents will share their perspectives on COVID-19’s impact upon colleges and universities and current and prospective students. This panel will look to the future and consider how schools, colleges, and departments of education—as primary links between PK-12 and higher education—can help both sectors recover.
