A jump start on practice-based teacher education

This workshop familiarizes participants with the basic concepts and tools of practice-based teacher education and equips them with approaches to teaching instructional practice. Participants will develop their ability to make teaching practice explicit to and learnable by teacher candidates, identify and sequence practice-based pedagogies, and explore the use of video and transcripts to teach practice.

Our 2022 workshop will focus on two high-leverage practices: eliciting and interpreting student thinking and modeling and explaining content. Participants can expect hands-on learning opportunities throughout, as well as opportunities to engage with the central theme of our 2022 Summer Programs––leveraging curriculum to advance justice.

Who should attend?

Anyone who teaches teachers is welcome to join the workshop, though it will be most applicable to methods course instructors or the equivalent. No previous experience with practice-based teacher education is necessary.

Advancing justice and ensuring relevance

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.

At this workshop, you’ll develop a repertoire of approaches to make teaching practices explicit to beginning teachers and engage them in supported practice. You will also gain facility with using curriculum as a text to support candidates in making necessary decisions about how to read, adapt, and leverage curriculum in their practice.
