How can educator preparation programs equip teachers and school leaders to provide each and every student with a high-quality education and inclusive opportunities to learn and grow in the classroom? This webinar—the second in a series of four webinars on effective teacher and leader preparation—looked at the integration of social and emotional learning (SEL) and cultural competence into educator preparation.

The webinar panel members are working to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in their practice, research, and daily interactions with teachers, leaders, and community stakeholders. It is hosted by the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE) and the Educator Preparation Laboratory (EdPrepLab, an initiative of Bank Street College of Education and LPI).
