We Teach Texas' Day-One-Ready Teachers

SUPCE: School and University Partnership Conference for Education

SUPCE 2020 can no longer be held April 25 as planned, and we are exploring postponing until the fall. Due to the venue registration process, the earliest we will know is late April. For now, the proposal and registration links are being removed until we can announce specific plans.

  • Engage: #SUPCE2020
  • Propose a presentation
  • Register

*Registration is free, but you must sign up by TBD.*

We encourage teachers and administrators to present on topics such as:

  • What's your great idea to prepare educators to succeed from the first day of their professional careers?
  • What can longtime educators do to stay at the top of their game?
  • How can transdisciplinary data help shape how we prepare the teachers of tomorrow?
  • How are teachers agents of social change?
  • What are the most effective ways that schools, districts, and universities support beginning educators?

Come share your experiences. Together, our perspectives help advance the profession.

The School and University Partnership Conference for Education (SUPCE) was begun by the College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi as a venue for the professional development of in-service teachers, aspiring teachers, and the university and school district members who work to improve education and develop educators. The concurrent sessions seek to provide participants with cutting edge educational research strategies grounded in theory and practice and issues dealing with social change and social justice as they pertain to the educational landscape.
