The Introduction to Practice-Based Teacher Education Workshop enables teacher educators
to develop a repertoire of approaches to making teaching practices explicit to beginning
teachers and engaging them in supported practice during pre-service training.
Skillful teaching can have a major impact on student learning. Teacher educators owe it to children to provide novice teachers with high-quality professional training so that they can develop strong, equitable instructional skills and use their craft to advance teaching for social justice. Our learning experiences are designed to help enable beginning teachers to successfully enact such teaching practices day after day in their classrooms.
Develop your ability to use decompositions to make teaching practice explicit to and learnable by teacher candidates.
Get an introduction to the Learning Cycle, and learn to employ it to identify and sequence practice-based pedagogies.
Explore teacher education pedagogies such as simulated student interaction and using video or transcripts to see and analyze teaching practice.
