Presentation Description

Between 2003 and 2009 the Partnership for 21st Century Skills released two reports that described skills required for students’ success in academia and beyond. Smith and Dobson (2011) argued teacher educators “are challenged to revise our teacher preparation programs to meet the needs of 21st century learners” (p. 317). Our two part analysis focused on the competencies described by the two Partnership for 21st Century Skills reports (2003 & 2009), and identified instances where those 21st century skills were promoted by teacher education institutions.
