California State University Summit:
Transformative Change in the Preparation of Teachers

February 14, 2011

The California State University (CSU) is playing a lead role nationally in the transformative re-design of teacher preparation. Twenty-two CSU campuses are preparing P-12 teachers in innovative ways, working in close partnership with local schools. They are focusing on preparing outstanding groups of new teachers who are effective with all students. Giving special attention to the challenges of urban and rural communities, these campuses are preparing new teachers through experiential, engaged, and active learning. Reflecting this leadership, A CSU Summit: Transformative Change in the Preparation of Teachers was hosted in collaboration with the National Academy of Sciences and several of the nationís leading educational organizations and philanthropic Foundations, held on February 14, 2011 at the Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences & Engineering, Irvine, California.
