Thursday, July 27, 2017

Time: 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Michigan Department of Education (MDE)
Lansing, Michigan


The Michigan Department of Education and REL Midwest conducted a two-part training to explore the potential of clinically oriented teacher preparation programs, or teacher residencies, in Michigan. During in-person sessions, higher education and K-12 representatives from across Michigan came together to learn about teacher residencies and to identify opportunities for potential partnerships between the higher education and K-12 sectors. REL Midwest generated a training handout that describes characteristics of successful clinically oriented teacher preparation programs, and profiles 10 of these programs throughout the United States, including 2 in Michigan.
