University-based teacher education remains the engine of teacher preparation in the United States. Long criticized, it has come under increasing scrutiny in recent months—from outside reviewers, from the U.S. Department of Education, and even from accreditation bodies—all of whom are pushing for changes. This webinar will introduce participants to the approaches taken by two teacher education schools to make the student-teaching experience more relevant and to emphasize the specific teaching skills the teachers they produce are expected to acquire and demonstrate.

Guests:
Mari Koerner, dean, Mary Lou Fulton College of Education, Arizona State University
Deborah Loewenberg Ball, dean, School of Education, University of Michigan
This webinar will be moderated by Stephen Sawchuk, assistant editor, Education Week

Underwriting for the content of this webinar has been provided by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
