Jan Carpenter Presents at AMLE Conference

Dr. Jan Carpenter presented at the Association of Middle Level Education national conference in Minneapolis in November 2013.

She co-presented three sessions:

From Middle School Teacher to College Professor:
Demystifying the Professorate

Topics included choosing a doctoral program, making a smooth transition into a professorial mindset, navigating diverse university settings and expectations, staging the road to tenure, teaching adult learners, selecting service opportunities, designing a research agenda and developing support systems for success.

Facilitating Preservice Teacher Development through
Clinical Partnerships

Teacher educators shared their experiences with bridging theory and practice through mentoring, meaningful assignments for the clinical setting, and guided reflection on clinical experiences in the university setting.

Collaborative Organizational Models that Work for
Teachers and Benefit Students

Teachers need time to share instructional and assessment practices, discuss student work and data, and collaborate on school improvement initiatives. Collaborative organizational models such as critical friends groups, common planning time teams, and professional learning communities provide teachers with opportunities to accomplish this critical work.

Dr. Carpenter is also chair of AMLE's Professional Preparation of Middle Level Teachers Advisory Board, which developed a pre-conference Symposium for Excellence in Teacher Education.

The Association of Middle Level Education is the leading international organization advancing the education of all students ages 10 to 15, helping them succeed as learners and make positive contributions to their communities and to the world.

Jan Carpenter is chair of the Department of Education at Marylhurst University, offering MA in Teaching and M.Ed. degree programs. Her areas of expertise are professional identity development of preservice teachers, middle level education and supervision models for clinical practice.
