Webinar Series: State Efforts for Building an Effective, Diverse Teacher Workforce

In partnership with Learning Forward, the National Conference of State Legislatures, and the National Association of State Boards of Education, the Learning Policy Institute co-hosted the third installment, Bridging the Continuum: Teacher Preparation and Induction for Deeper Learning, which explored state and district efforts to connect quality teacher preparation and induction with the principles of deeper learning and will also look at ways that states and districts are aligning systems of quality professional learning and early career supports.

The webinar included a discussion of efforts to introduce and sustain district and institution of higher education partnerships that support high-quality teacher preparation and induction, while exploring potential obstacles to successful implementation.
