The Changing Landscape:

Bringing Communities Together to Impact P20 Learning


Nazareth College has a rich history of preparing teachers in clinically rich teacher education programs. More recently, we have worked to implement the Regents Reform Agenda for Teaching and Learning.

Through funding from the Council of Independent Colleges (cIcu), we have the opportunity to bring together a P20 audience of our collaborative partners to assess the impact of our practices, and how to enhance them moving forward.

Please join us in multi-district working "institute" where we will share and discuss new initiatives in teacher education preparation. We will seek your feedback about our initial certification programs in inclusive early childhood, childhood, adolescence and TESOL, and our candidates’ readiness for teaching roles. Together we will envision new opportunities for P20 collaboration.

We invite you to attend and offer your input to guide our planning and action.
