Redesigned AACTE Web Site Streamlines Design, Content

I am pleased to announce that today marks the official launch of the redesigned AACTE.org.

In service to our members and the broader educator preparation community, AACTE undertook a major overhaul of its web site over the past year. Last August, many of you responded to our request for feedback on our web site. Based on your thoughtful input, we have transformed our information-sharing platform to be a more useful, supportive asset for our ongoing collaborative work.

In a time when information is almost exclusively created, shared, and accessed electronically, it is important that our electronic information-sharing tools be technologically current, well-designed, and user friendly. This redesign of AACTE.org serves as a smart, relevant electronic business card among power players in the greater education community—and more important, as a go-to resource for members like you.

Five Tips for Writing a Successful AACTE Annual Meeting Proposal

Each year, AACTE receives approximately 500 session proposals for its Annual Meeting. Given the limited number of spaces available for presentations, less than 50% of proposals are accepted for presentation. Want to make your proposal “stand out” from other proposals received? Here are five tips to help your proposal rise to the top:

  1. Follow the Format – Reviewers evaluate proposals based on the content and formatting outlined in the Presenter Expectations. Be sure to familiarize yourself with those prior to writing your proposal.

Connect With TAGs

You may have heard about AACTE’s Topical Action Groups (TAGs), a valuable member program that provides an AACTE-sponsored forum for peers to work together on a common professional topic of interest.

Now we’ve made it even easier for you to connect with TAGs! Simply click here to identify your areas of interest and expertise through AACTE’s Profile Manager—it won’t take more than a minute.

Annual Meeting Program Book Now Available

AACTE’s 66th Annual Meeting is almost here. Have you thought about which of the almost 300 sessions to attend in Indianapolis? Take a look at the 2014 Annual Meeting program book, now available online.

After flipping through the program book, log in to AACTE’s Event Planner to build an itinerary (or add to your existing one) of the sessions you can’t miss. Export the itinerary to your Outlook calendar, or print a copy to keep handy.

See you in just 10 days!

Announcing the Annual Meeting Event Planner

Note: This post also appears on the AACTE Annual Meeting site.

March will be here before we know it. The latest evidence of its rapid approach? The full AACTE Annual Meeting schedule is now available to you in the brand new Event Planner tool.
Accessible to everyone with an AACTE login (and anyone with an institutional e-mail address can set up an AACTE login), the Event Planner contains all the information we will be printing in the program book—but with search and scheduling functions that paper can’t match.
