Preparing strong educators for the classroom is a feat in which most institutions of higher education succeed. Documenting the impact of their preparation programs, in a manner understandable and meaningful to the public, is not. In an enterprise where pathways to teaching - outside of higher education - multiply every year, it is critical that institutions develop clear statements on the impact of their programs. Learn how preparation programs have developed methods for measuring their impact on schools and student learning, and how they have used this information to communicate the value of their programs.
Takeaway: Learn how preparation programs measure their impact on schools and student learning, and use this information to communicate the value of their programs, in an increasingly competitive educator preparation marketplace.
