Professional Development for Remote Learning in Teacher Education to Support Teacher Educators and Preservice Teachers during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Abstract: In this Best Practices presentation, we will showcase the methods and strategies we used to provide professional development to our teacher educators and pre-service teachers in the College of Education during the pandemic. We will introduce our PD team, their roles, TETCS, and our methods and strategies in detail during our presentation. We will share the topics of the workshops offered, which were crowdsourced from teacher educators and pre-service teachers. These topics are targeted PD topics that help our teacher educators and pre-service teachers the most for remote and online learning. We will also share the outcomes and challenges we face and how to find innovative solutions. We will engage the participants by adding polls and discussion questions during the session. We will also lead a Q&A session at the end of the presentation to answer the audience’s questions.
