Take a look at some of the slated discussions for this year’s Annual Meeting.

Features Sessions (formerly Deeper Dive sessions)

Competency-Based Education and Teacher Education: Next Steps
AACTE continues to partner with the Competency-Based Education Network (CBEN) and together have invited CAEP to work in alliance towards infusing CBE into teacher preparation. AACTE’s collaboration with CBEN began at Annual Meeting 2023 and there have been subsequent meetings at CAEP and CBEN. This deeper dive into the topic is to update the field on our progress to date and next steps to support members and the field.

Growing Our Work in Internationalization
AACTE has extended its work in internationalization in support of its members and the field. From the Global Education Professional Learning Community through strategic partnerships with the University of Glasgow to the Global Network of Deans of Education, AACTE is committed to creating capacity for the field to be strengthened through internationalization. This session will bring together institutions and individuals who can provide real-time strategies for the expansion of global work in educator preparation.

Election 2024: Implications of Federal and State Races for Educator Preparation
What is at stake for educator preparation in the upcoming election? What could changes at the federal and state level mean for important issues such as the affordability of educator preparation, academic censorship, and diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB)? AACTE has assembled a panel of political and policy experts to address these issues and your questions.

AI Integration in Education: Bridging the Gap for Future Educators
As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to shape the world at large, it is imperative that educator preparation programs (EPPs) adapt to equip future teachers with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate this evolving socio-economic system. This AACTE-featured session will offer diverse perspectives from higher education and PK–12 partners on the critical role of EPPs in preparing future educators with adequate AI knowledge, ensuring they are ready to harness the benefits while acknowledging the ethical concerns stemming from the technology.
