UA Teacher Consortium at UAS
UAS hosted the UA Teacher Education Consortium meeting on March 26 at the Auke Lake Campus.
The consortium is focusing on ways that UA can continue to improve the quality of its teacher education programs and the success of graduates in securing jobs in Alaska's schools. Members of the consortium include key education stakeholders across the state, including Alaska's Commissioner of Education, chair of the State Board of Education, deans of UA schools and college of education, and Alaska Native leaders. The meeting had a special focus on input from superintendents across Alaska--learning from their experience in hiring UA graduates. Among participants in this meeting were BOR Chair Pat Jacobson, UA Vice President Dana Thomas, and UAS Chancellor John Pugh. The agenda produced specific action steps for follow-up by UA deans and faculty. The consortium will meet again in October.
