Master Teacher Professional Development

All UTeach Master Teachers are welcome to join this professional development series by Master Teachers for Master Teachers. Last Friday of every month.

Upcoming MTPD

How the Pandemic Inspired Field Experience Co-Teaching

Dr. Jennifer Smith and Dr. Shelly Rodriguez, University of Texas at Austin, UTeach Austin
Friday, September 30 from 1-2 p.m. CT
We’ll discuss the impact of the pandemic on the classroom preparation of students entering CI and the strategies we implemented to better support them. In the fall 2021 semester, we worked with mentor teachers to implement a co-teaching model to support students in developing classroom teaching skills. This strategy was so successful that it was permanently adopted into the field experience and adapted for Step 1. Come to this session to see how this strategy is implemented in both courses and consider how to implement it in your context.
