TES Annual Meetings & Task Force Reports

Adult Learners

The work of the Teacher Educators Section (TES) is performed throughout the year by standing committees and task forces. The TES appoints or elects individuals to work on specific areas of teacher education, including admissions, affiliation, curriculum, practicum experience, evaluation, certification standards and guidelines, and recommendations to the AMS Board of Directors.

If you'd like to learn more about work that is currently being done by the TES, work that has been done in the past, or specifics about a TES Annual Meeting, you'll find that information here.

Teacher Educators Section Annual Meetings

The TES meets once a year, typically immediately before the AMS Annual Conference in March. The event includes an annual meeting, professional development,, and opportunities for networking. Directors, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to attend.
