Research & Policy Webinar Series: Addressing the Teacher Shortage Crisis in Special Education
As part of our collaborative grant project with George Mason University, Project PRISE (Preparing Research Intensive Special Educators), through the Office of Special Education Programs (U.S. Department of Education), we are working with national and state leaders to host two research to policy webinars during the fall 2019 semester.
These webinars will be panel discussions with educational policy leaders in the field. They aim to engage our education community across Virginia and nationally as we continue to work toward a better future for students receiving special education services in PK-12 settings.
The webinars will finish on a discussion about our joint doctoral leadership training cohort opportunity between GMU and VCU. The PRISE scholars program aims to prepare future faculty with expertise in research, teacher education certification and accreditation, teacher education preparation and policy. A key outcome is to support future faculty members who can translate policy and research to make a positive contribution to the teacher preparation environment at the national, state and local levels. PRISE scholars will learn the skills to translate that research to the state and national level and create sustainable and meaningful impact for future generations.
