February 2019 | AACTE

This multimedia resource from the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) details the second phase in a larger program designed to implement networked improvement communities (NICs) to diversify the teacher workforce to include Black and Hispanic/Latino male teachers. The introductory video features a panel of Black and Hispanic/Latino male educators who share how their research has led them to use a collective approach to address this diversity issue at the campus level as well as generationally and discipline-wide. The resource highlights  the following evidence-based approaches to addressing this issue: reducing barriers, developing partnerships, building recruitment pathways, mentorship, and education preparatory program faculty training. The resource also links to 10 case studies from member institutions.
