Educator Preparation Fellowship and Design Challenge





In November 2017, the Rhode Island Department of Education and the Rhode Island Office of Innovation launched a new fellowship for distinguished educators who are interested in innovation in educator preparation.  The fellows engaged in monthly meetings to learn more about design thinking and about educator preparation in Rhode Island.  

Beginning in June 2018, educator preparation programs in Rhode Island have the opportunity to collaborate with our Ed Prep Design Fellows to design and pitch an innovative preparation program to a panel of judges.  The winning team(s) will receive $15,000 to support implementation of their new idea.
