Program Title: N/A


This proposal seeks to tap into the experiences and expertise of Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) teacher educators, experienced and novice teachers and teacher candidates in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) to inform a community-engaged pedagogy framework that will bridge school and university cultures – an initiative critical to a sustainable and equitable approach to transforming teacher preparation. Through a mixed methods approach, the study will document Latinx educators’ professional, cultural, and linguistic experiences learning to teach as well as effective practices and stances for teaching and learning. Simultaneously, as a result of this focus, this study will also bridge school and university cultures. A key outcome of this project will be the creation of a community-generated, durable body of knowledge able to inform the continuing work of transforming The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley’s (UTRGV’s) teacher preparation program, and by implication, teacher preparation in the RGV. Closely related to this outcome will be the strengthening of the partnership between the educator preparation program, schools, and the community, so promoting greater cooperation and collaboration. Secondary outcomes of this project will include the production of published papers and conference presentations.
