In July 2021, TeachingWorks will welcome the next cohort for our certificate in practice-based approaches to methods course instruction in teacher education, designed for content methods instructors in teacher education programs. This one-of-a-kind 18-month learning sequence will enable teacher education methods course instructors to:

  • Build facility with practice-based approaches for preparing new teachers such as video analysis and rehearsal that intertwine content knowledge, teaching practice, and attending to issues of justice.
  • Develop competence and confidence in preparing new teachers who understand systemic inequity and who seek to use their teaching practice to disrupt patterns of injustice in classrooms, support bilingual students, and deliver culturally responsive instruction
  • Join a powerful network of teacher educators who understand their role in supporting excellent beginning teaching in U.S. classrooms and are committed to continuously improving the instructional practice of their teacher candidates by first improving their own practice.

The learning sequence will include virtual events, coaching, and webinars, and will lead to a certificate issued by TeachingWorks. Click below to learn more about the learning sequence’s learning goals, application requirements and procedures.
