From Metaphorically Speaking to Acting Boldly: A Commentary on the Special Issue
Rock, Marcia L.; Billingsley, Bonnie
Teacher Education and Special Education, v37 n1 p71-76 Feb 2014
Casting special education teacher development as an avatar living in a virtual and changing landscape is a creative way to consider the current state of the field and project possible futures. In this commentary, the authors consider areas that may help strengthen the Avatar, including conceptualizing and identifying the outcomes of teacher education, and aligning teacher preparation practices to achieve these outcomes from entry into teacher preparation through induction and ongoing professional development.
