Inclusion through Innovation: Teacher Preparation for Classrooms of Today and Tomorrow
Preparing current and future educators to meet the needs of ALL learners is complex. The pandemic has led to further challenges and yet, it has also required teacher preparation efforts to think outside the box. This interactive presentation will consider ways innovations have and continue to alter what teacher education can and should be doing to further support the development of professionals that can meet the needs of a variety of learners and in so doing, further foster inclusion for all students in today’s inclusionary classrooms. Together, we will explore the impact innovations are and continue to have on teacher preparation for classrooms of today and tomorrow.
