Half Day Workshop Descriptions

Reimagining "Method" in Methods Courses

Workshop #1 is being presented on Saturday, February 12th, 2022 from 9:00am-12:00pm Central Time, $50.

Description: What do we want to mean by "method" in these important courses? This session will explore ways to intertwine teacher candidates' learning of teaching practice with content knowledge for teaching and explicit focus on justice and equity. We will identify and confront endemic challenges of these courses and show ways to take advantage of the special opportunities for learning that they can provide.

Teaching Practice: Pedagogies of Teacher Education

Workshop #2 is being presented on Saturday, February 12th, 2022 from 1:00pm-4:00pm Central Time, $50.

Description: How can the risks of converting the learning of practice into an academic or technical exercise be averted? This session will introduce and provide hands-on experience with a set of specific approaches to teaching teaching that can support teacher candidates to be learning to do teaching, including the nuances and judgment entailed.


Presenter: Deborah Loewenberg Ball is the William H. Payne Collegiate Professor of education at the University of Michigan, an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, a research professor in the Institute for Social Research, and the director of TeachingWorks. She taught elementary school for more than 15 years, and continues to teach children every summer. Ball’s research focuses on the practice of teaching, using elementary mathematics as a critical context for investigating the challenges of building relationships with children and helping children develop agency and understanding, and on leveraging the power of teaching to disrupt racism, marginalization, and inequity. Ball is an expert on teacher education, and her current work centers on ways to improve the quality of beginning teaching to advance justice.Ball has authored more than 150 publications and has lectured and made major presentations around the world. She has also developed distinctive collections of video records of practice that are broadly used to make practice visible. Her research has been recognized with several awards and honors, and she has served on national and international commissions and panels focused on the improvement of education.She served as president of the American Educational Research Association from 2017 to 2018, as a member of the National Science Board from 2013 to 2018, and as dean of the University of Michigan School of Education from 2005 to 2016. Ball has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Education, and is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society and the American Educational Research Association.

    Mentoring Relationships in Supervision: Strategies for Addressing Problems of

    Practice in COVID-19 Contexts

    Workshop #4 is being presented on Sunday, February 13th,  2022 from 1:00pm-4:00pm Central Time, $50.


    When educators try to unpack the complexities of supervision/mentoring it all comes down to RELATIONSHIPS! How teacher educators develop productive relationships with their teacher candidate/mentee is the focus of the workshop.  What "strategies" do supervisors/mentors need for developing productive relationships with their novice teachers?  A vision of establishing positive, trusting, and respectful relationship requires attending to developmental needs of the novice teacher:

    • Teachers need to acquire an increasingly complex level of cognitive functioning as they learn teaching across instructional and executive functioning dimensions.
    • Teachers need to possess self-knowledge and the ability to recognize their own implicit biases that can influence their  teaching and interactions with others. 
    • Teachers need to examine their beliefs about teaching and learning through research-based knowledge that connects content and pedagogy.

    Supervisors/mentors can attend to a novice teacher's needs through intentional practices to: uncover their developmental needs; set up communication processes that engage them in reflection and introspection on their practice; and connect their beliefs about teaching and learning to their practices. Participants will be engaged in defining what a productive relationship with a teacher candidate/mentee entails, and will be engaged in trying out protocols and strategies to nurture productive relationships.

    Enhancing Instructional Environments with Online, Simple, and Freely Available Technology Resources

    A Friday Online Workshop is being presented online on Friday, February 4th, 2022; 1:00pm- 4:00pm Central Time, $50.


    During this hands-on workshop, you will be guided through a variety of technology tools to advance your current practices with online teaching and learning. Recommendations to enhance your instructional design and ideas to develop an online community of learning will be shared as a group.

    Presenter: Caroline Crawford, University of Houston-Clear Lake. Caroline has enjoyed the world of instructional design and learning technologies since the early years of dial-up internet, when simple HTML scripting was considered to be a miraculous feat beyond all imagination. She was creating online instructional content before online learning was a “thing,” many times sharing the weird, wacky, and wildly wonderful instructionally relevant experiences that were possible to create in this new online realm. Her mantra is that the technology supports the instructional process, and if the technology isn’t both instructionally viable and easy to integrate into the instructional experience … then it’s just not worth using. She began her career as a secondary classroom teacher while earning her master’s degree, going on to earn her doctorate in curriculum theory and instructional technology specializations, and currently grounds herself in her University of Houston-Clear Lake home as Professor of Instructional Design and Technology.
