This is the 14th annual National Student Teaching & Supervision Conference. This year, the conference heads back to West Chester University.
The purpose of the conference is to provide professional educators with the opportunity to convey research and demonstrate best practices related to student teaching and/or clinical field experiences, including the enhancement of knowledge, skills, and dispositions of teacher candidates.
Proposals from stakeholders in all areas of teacher preparation are sought. These proposals are double blind reviewed to ensure quality presentations. In addition to a keynote address, an educational issues forum, a networking session, and concurrent sessions, there is a teacher candidate poster session.
