2017 TEA 

Special Opportunity for Collaboration through Conversation


For the past several years, a number of TEA evaluation forms have requested that the conference include an opportunity to engage with colleagues about important topics in teacher education and teacher education courses. Our long-term hope is that the sessions will lead to ongoing collaboration across institutions and perhaps even syllabus sharing.  We believe that these one-hour conversations are a good way to start the process.


The session will be structured to allow participants to respond to a variety of conversation prompts such as key outcomes, challenges, successes, promising practices, assignments, assessments and useful resources.  A member of the TEA Planning Committee will facilitate each session to try to insure that all participants will have a chance to participate.
