About This Video

Multiple research studies suggest that fully prepared teachers in special education are more effective and are more likely to remain in the teaching profession than are teachers who are not fully prepared. It is clear that public schools need fully prepared and credentialed special education teachers.

This session will highlight innovation occurring among educator preparation programs to recruit individuals into the profession and to prepare and support them. Educator preparation programs engaged in the CEEDAR-supported, American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education Special Education Networked Improvement Community will discuss the innovative pathways and mutually beneficial partnerships that have bolstered recruitment and retainment efforts. 

Featuring:

  • Dr. David Winters, Eastern Michigan University
