We Provide Opportunities to Learn for Teachers and Leaders
CEEDAR stands for “Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform. We help states and institutes of higher education reform their teacher and leader preparation programs, revise licensure standards to align with reforms, refine personnel evaluation systems, and realign policy structures and professional learning systems.
What do we do?
We help develop effective and aligned educational processes.
The CEEDAR Center works with states, universities, and education agencies. We like to say that we provide “Opportunities to Learn for Teachers and Leaders.” We are a national technical assistance center dedicated to supporting states in their efforts to develop teachers and leaders who can successfully prepare students with disabilities to achieve college and career-ready standards.
How do we do it?
Our 3-fold approach to Technical Assistance
Intensive Technical Assistance is our most robust form of assistance available. We provide in-depth expert consultation to assist you in reforming your teacher education programs, revising your licensure standards, refining your personnel evaluation systems, and aligning your policy structures and professional learning systems.
Targeted Technical Assistance provides States the opportunity to concentrate in a chosen area for improvement. We provide consultative services for a client-chosen area. Your state will also have access to our innovative Networked Improvement Community (NIC) to facilitate system-wide reform.
Universal Technical Assistance is available to anyone at no cost. Ceedar.org contains a variety of resources including scholarly papers, expert blog posts, and our Course Enhancement Modules (CEMs). These modules are catered to faculty and professional learning practitioners to augment their courses.
