The 2015 Summer Conference of the Association of Teacher Educators, held at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, ended on August 4, 2015. The theme for the conference was Accountability: Making It Meaningful. Highlights included:
• Outstanding evening events at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater, where attendees saw Mary Poppins, and the Minneapolis Queen river cruise.
• Keynote presentations focusing on accountability at different levels: a uniquely personal view from Debby Irving; a look at accountabilty in the classroom and in teacher preparation programs taking into account racial justice from Geneva Gay; and a macro view of societal accountability from Keven Kumashiro.
• Well attended presentations throughout the conference on subjects ranging from evidence based strategies for increasing academic achievement to accountability and clinically based teacher education programs.
• A featured panel on co-teaching as best practice, and a featured session on the educator's impact on the community (the latter presented by Allan Law, "the sandwich man" of the Minneapolis Recreation Department).
