October 29, 2018

Time: 10:30 am – 12:00 pm ET

Location: Virtual (webinar)

Description: The goal of the webinar is to build capacity of local and state leaders, as well as administrators from higher education, to address teacher shortages via district–university partnerships. This webinar will increase participants’ knowledge of a diverse set of approaches underway, beginning with a broad overview of the data demonstrating the growing gap in teacher supply and demand in the mid-Atlantic region. It will describe four existing district–university partnerships in the region and discuss lessons learned to date.

Partnership or Research Alliance: Training and supporting excellent educators

Audience: The primary audience for the event includes school leaders from local education agencies (LEAs), such as central and building administrators, program directors, directors of talent or teacher selection and recruitment, teachers, and principals. It also includes representatives from higher education who are involved in educator preparation programs, as well as staff members in state education agencies (SEAs) who are working on statewide efforts to develop a talent pipeline for new teachers or who want to promote district–university partnerships in LEAs within their states.
