The National Center for Alternative Certification will host its Third Annual Conference in San Diego from February 8-11, 2006 with the theme, Alternative Routes to Teaching: Meeting the Challenges to Quality. NCAC calls for papers supporting the theme. Deadline, October 1, 2005.
Here’s a place for teachers who came through non-teacher ed preparation, especially former advanced tech industry participants, to describe how we use our background, including Tablet PCs and other electronic tools, in classrooms.
NCAC offers state-by-state information about alternative teacher certification programs besides conventional higher education teacher preparation majors.
