Brief: Inclusive Instruction
In this brief we highlight the design principle titled: Inclusive Instruction, as defined by BranchED. We believe inclusive instruction minimizes or removes barriers to learning or assessment and supports the success of all learners, while ensuring that academic standards are not diminished.
Brief: Data Empowerment
In this brief, we highlight the design principle titled: Data Empowered, as defined by BranchED. We believe quality educator preparation is predicated on an active culture of inquiry in which stakeholders and education partners engage in authentic and ongoing cycles of evidence-based improvement.
Student Data Privacy and Data Ethics Scenarios
These materials aim to help pre-service and in-service educators understand privacy risks and ethical concerns that arise in school-based situations and to provide guidance on how to mitigate risk and harm by discussing the legal obligations and best practices for protecting student data privacy.
Nuts & Bolts Framework Series--Empowered by Data: Fostering a Culture of Inquiry
In this webinar, learn how educator preparation providers (EPPs) have transitioned from a culture of compliance to an active culture of inquiry, utilizing an authentic and ongoing cycle of evidence-based improvement.
BranchED Signature Framework: Principle Briefs
Each brief visits one of the design principles to ensure continued relevance to quality educator preparation and provide additional information on each based on the literature.
State Data Resource Guide
The State Data Resource Guide will provide teacher preparation programs (TPPs) with links to relevant education data on at three levels: state, national, and TPP. The Resource Guide includes links to data for states served by BranchED and will be updated as new sources become available.
BranchED seeks to support individual educator preparation programs (EPPs) and the field at large in reimagining and redefining “quality” preparation programs such that attention to issues of diversity and equity are explicit, embedded, and inextricably linked to high-quality performance.
The Resource Portal was created to support our community by providing resources such as instructional materials, online modules, podcasts, practice-based learning opportunities, research briefs, teaching video library, tool/toolkit, and webinars.
