About CCTE

California Council on Teacher Education

Founded in 1945, the California Council on Teacher Education (CCTE) is a non-profit organization devoted to stimulating the improvement of the pre-service and in-service education of teachers and administrators. CCTE sponsors Teacher Education Quarterly to further this goal. CCTE supports a diverse community of teacher educators who seek to be informed, reflective, and active regarding significant research, sound practice, and current public educational issues.

Those seeking membership in CCTE can choose either the institutional or individual option. Colleges and universities with credential programs, professional organizations with interests in the preparation of teachers, school districts and public agencies in the field of education may join as institutional members. Individuals with an interest in teacher education are also encouraged to join. Membership grants full participation in semi-annual spring and fall conferences, subscription to Teacher Education Quarterly and Issues in Teacher Education, newsletters on timely issues, an informal network for sharing sound practices in teacher education, and involvement in annual awards and recognitions in the field.

The semi-annual conferences of the CCTE, rotated each year between sites in northern and southern California, feature significant themes in the field of education, prominent speakers, opportunities for presentation of research and discussion of promising practices, and lively conversation regarding current and future policy issues in teacher education.
