EXAMPLES OF HOW THE STANDARDS ARE USED

Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH

First, all members of the Department of Secondary and Special Education unanimously agreed to endorse the "revised ATE teacher educator standards" as a framework for their individual work as teacher educators. This means that each member will decide--on his/her own--how this impacts their work in teaching students, in providing service to the profession, and in conducting research about teaching and learning. Nothing was mandated as a result of the vote of endorsement.

Second, Dr. Mike Flick (department chair) did state that everyone in the department will become members of ATE, and the department will pay the membership costs for the first year of membership.
