In this session, participants will learn how two higher ed institutions in Maine are aligning their teacher preparation program design to increasingly align with PK–12 beliefs and best practices of proficiency-based education. Preservice teachers from each institution will share perspectives on how they are preparing for both effective teaching and professional practice. Finally, to capitalize on the collective wisdom of current practitioners, participants will use a protocol to share critical knowledge, dispositions, and resources to assist both current educators and preservice teachers in designing proficiency based learning environments.

Participants will identify knowledge, dispositions, and skills critical to the training and early success of preservice educators in proficiency environments and engage in discourse of how to best recruit and prepare our next generation of educators.
