How do we help the next generation of teachers become connected public practitioners?

Session 4
Kira Baker-Doyle — Arcadia University School of Education

The aim of this conversation is to rethink teacher education from the perspective of building a context/ecosystem of connectedness between the students/institution and the broader community of professional educators (rather than thinking of teacher education as providing content or skills from a singular source - the college/university). The conversation is meant to explore this idea and begin to build a network of thinkers on this topic. We'll discuss questions like: What would this re-design mean for teacher education (implications)? What would it look like? Are there current examples? What are the challenges? What are the benefits? What connections would be beneficial for beginning teachers?
