Explore our Resource Portal
The BranchED portal is designed to support both teacher educators and PK-12 partners in their professional development. Whether you’re seeking information on a particular topic, looking to take an online course, or to stay current with our evolving library of resources, we’ve got something for you.
PK-12 Learning Toolkit
BranchED identified areas where EPPs could increase teacher candidates' situated knowing and practice opportunities. These became the basis for this toolkit and are represented by four strands: Special Education, Curriculum Literacy, Technology Platforms, and General Policies and Procedures.
PK-12 Learning Toolkit: General Policies and Procedures
In this toolkit we highlight General Policies and Procedures and provide several activities that can be used with teacher candidates and in-service teachers. This is part of our PK-12 Learning Toolkit series.
Workshop: Innovative Solutions: Using Mixed Reality Simulation in the Classroom
This workshop focuses on the use of MRS to provide teacher candidates opportunities for purposeful practice addressing complex situations. The workshop consists of two sessions and includes a panel of faculty experienced using MRS in their coursework and a live MRS demonstration.
Creating Meaningful Mathematic Experiences: A SEL Approach
In this module you will learn about evidence-based practices that will support teaching mathematics in elementary school settings through the lens of a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) practitioner.
Workshop: Introduction to Translanguaging in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Classrooms
This recorded workshop and accompanying slide deck unpack the theoretical understandings of translanguaging and related topics such as language acquisition and bilingual education. They also provide hands-on activities and resources for reflection and practice.
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.
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.
