Pre-Conference Workshop Details

Presenters: Dee Berlinghoff & Virginia McLaughlin

This workshop is intended for higher education faculty or other program developers who are revising initial special educator preparation programs or creating new ones. The focus will be on an approach to program design that will be useful to program desiring to align with the most current international standards and high leverage practices. The presenters, who Co-Chaired the CEC Standards Development Workgroup (2017-2020), will provide an overview of the 2020 Practice-Based Professional Preparation Standards (K-12) with insights into the supportive resources available. They then will share practical strategies and tools for program development and assessment. During the workshop, participants will have opportunities to try out several tools applied to their own programs. Although this workshop is not specifically designed to provide preparation for the SPA Program Report or CEC Accreditation processes, it will provide programs with useful tools and strategies that will provide useful preparation for those processes. * All attendees will receive a copy of the purple book**

This complimentary workshop does have a limited capacity - so register early so secure your spot ( must be registered for the full conference to register).

Presenters: Mary Brownell, Melinda Leko

In this preconference workshop, we discuss the role of practice in teacher candidate learning; describe the features of effective practice based learning opportunities (PLOs); and help faculty understand how they can implement PLOs to meet the needs of their students. Participants who attend this preconference workshop will dissect PLOs promoted by the CEEDAR Center, discuss implementation considerations, identify areas in their program where they can implement PLOs, and articulate steps they will have to take to move towards implementation.


Presenters: David Bateman & Mitchell Yell

Because IEPs are the center of many, if not most, IDEA disputes, it is essential special education administrators and teachers have the knowledge and tools to develop IEPs reasonably calculated to enable students to make “progress appropriate” in light of their circumstances. The workshop will assist you steps and strategies for teaching meaningful and legally sound IEPs.
