Welcome to the National Pre-Service Teacher Resource Center! This online resource center is free to all pre-service teachers, teacher educators, student teachers, new teacher induction program participants, student teacher supervisors, and seasoned teachers serving as cooperating teachers.
Mission and Purpose
Teacher educators spend countless hours creating a robust online learning environment for their pre-service teachers in a variety of learning management systems. They model best practices in online teaching for their students by creating weekly modules filled with rich educational resources which include links to professional organizations, primary source resources, policy papers, etc. At the end of the semester, students lose access to their LMS pages (Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, D2L/Brightspace, Google Classroom, etc.) for their courses. Unless students save the links to all of the resources in a special file to access during student teaching and in their first years as educators, they have lost a gold mine of resources. This online resource center will serve as a clearinghouse of resources for effective curriculum development, instruction, and assessment. Welcome!
