Abstract

This study focused on preparing educators to be effective and confident in facilitating learning in innovative settings. School leaders have indicated a challenge in finding and retaining effective educators in innovative settings, whether it is project-based learning, virtual, hybrid, outdoor, or international. Traditional teacher education programs are not necessarily providing the skills and dispositions needed for innovative settings. Our study created and is now implementing a teacher education curriculum that supports innovative schools by developing teachers who can facilitate learning in a variety of settings using inquiry, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. Our goal is to continue to supplement traditional teacher education with the skills and dispositions that will create educators who can be consistently successful in innovative schools.
