Reimagining a College of Education at AACTE 2018

by | Saturday, March 03, 2018

I was recently in Baltimore for the 70th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE), with a team from the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. We presented the work we are currently engaged in under the broad title of Reimagining the Role of the College of Education: One College’s Ongoing Story. Presenters included Carole Basile (speaking about the overall thrust of the College’s initiatives), Nicole Thompson (speaking of how we are reimagining teacher preparation) and yours truly (speaking of the community design labs and the work we are doing with school district partners). Brent Maddin could not make the meeting so his area (reimagining the educator work-force) was presented by Carole. The session was well attended and we got some good QnA at the end. This link  provides a pdf version of the slides we presented.

On becoming a website

Educators as Designers

Educators as Designers

How might we? Three words, and a question mark. At one level it is a simple question—leaving open what it is that we might do. But at another level its openness is its strength. Because inherent within it is a call to action, a discomfort with the way things are, and...

Laptops in the classroom

Only one recipe…

I have been catching up on my reading of Slate and came across this gem of an article by Judith Shulevitz titled, The care and feeding of fiction. Shulevitz has written a quasi-review of James Wood's new book How fiction works and makes we want to read the book...
