Teacher Education Division
(TED) of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), the term
represents two-fold significance for this organization:
(1) as this is an organization whose members are primarily special education teacher-educators, our constituency are providers of professional development; (2) in order to prepare these special education teachers and other professionals well, our constituency are also recipients of professional development, as they also require their own professional development.
As an organization we are actively engaged in knowledge generation and dissemination vis-à-vis how to enhance the preparation of personnel who seek to work with individuals with disabilities and their families. We conduct research, refine our practices and serve as the voice for special education teacher educators on the local, national, and international levels.
Our publications and conferences serve as significant resources for dissemination of best or recommended practices. Being the voice for special education teacher educators, the knowledge generation and dissemination we provide often serves as the standard for our field. Special education teacher-educators seek to continually refine and renew their practices, and they come to TED for timely, relevant, and cutting-edge professional development information.
If you are involved in either knowledge generation or dissemination for special education teacher education, the
Teacher Education Division is the place for your professional development.
