Limited Submission Announcement

The Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) Award for the Distinguished Program in Teacher Education (DPTE) honors outstanding teacher education programs that exemplify collaboration between local education agencies and institutions of higher education in program development and administration. This award is designed to stimulate development and innovation which will bring into harmony all those agencies which have direct involvement in the preparation of teachers. It also is intended to emphasize the ATE's concern for quality in teacher preparation. Programs will be considered that

  • have been cooperatively developed and administered by institutions of higher education and local education agencies along with other appropriate educational agencies;
  • have clearly stated goals directed at the establishment of identifiable teacher behaviors;
  • have an evaluation protocol that is appropriate, operational, and directly related to its goals;
  • provide data to demonstrate that after program implementation, goals were achieved; and
  • are based on theoretically sound principles that are adaptable to other teacher education programs.
