Innovations to Support How Educators are Prepared to Partner with Families to Promote Student Learning
AACTE is pleased to offer Lunch & Learns: professional development opportunities for members. These 30-minute sessions are designed to provide you with an immediate tool or strategy to apply to your work. Can’t make it virtually? All Lunch & Learns will be available on-demand for AACTE members. Watch them during your lunch break or whenever it is convenient for you.
On Wednesday, January 24, from 1:00 – 1:30 p.m. ET, join the National Association for Family, School, and Community Engagement (NAFSCE) directors, Margaret Caspe, Ph.D., and Reyna Hernandez, J.D., as they discuss an ongoing partnership between the NAFSCE and AACTE designed to reimagine how educators are prepared to connect, collaborate, and lead alongside families.
Today’s educators and families experience extraordinary pressures and challenges; teacher shortages, ongoing repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, and strained relationships between parents and educators require new ideas to ensure a quality education for all students. Preparing educators for family and community engagement is one way to address these issues by better positioning students for success, supporting family efficacy and well-being, and improving educator job satisfaction. During this AACTE Lunch & Learn, participants will hear about the work of nine dynamic collaboratives of educator preparation programs, families, communities, and schools from across the country that have begun to redesign coursework, clinical experiences, and programs that are making an impact.
