Pre-teaching Practicum Experiences as Recruitment for STEM Future Teachers of Color (Moderator: Jamie Chan)
Recruitment of diverse teacher candidates continues to be an area of high need, especially in STEM disciplines. Exposure to early science practicum experiences for undergraduates, especially students of color, can play a role in reversing this trend by providing opportunities for prospective educators to observe and practice high-quality science teaching, access deeper science content knowledge and setting higher expectations for program completion. Learn about best practices when offering these hands on science labs from four long-running programs in the CSUs and hear experiences from former student participants who are now credentialed teachers.

Diversity & Equity in Teacher Recruitment (Moderator: Cheryl Ordorica)
Why is diversity and equity important in teacher recruitment? What factors lead to a supportive, inclusive learning environment for diverse teacher candidates? How does validating interpersonal, social, and academic lived experiences and interactions attract diverse candidates in pre-teaching programs? These important topics will be investigated further, and the main goal of this webinar is to examine best equitable practices to recruit diverse educators in pre-teaching professional pathways. Some examples may include the development and implementation of tailored marketing strategies; foster an inclusive, supportive learning environment; sustain productive communication methods; and evaluation to assess measurable outcomes.

Using Data, Technology & Systems to Enhance Teacher Recruitment & Outreach (Moderator: Jason Chan)
Technology is around us every day, but how does your team use data and systems as part of your teacher recruitment efforts? After a recruiting event, how do you stay in communication with a prospect and nurture that relationship? Do you collect data to help you determine what types of recruiting events and/or prospects have a higher probability of applying to your credential program? There are so many tools and options that there is no "right" answer... as long as we're doing something on a consistent basis. Join us for this webinar where we share and discuss some of the tools and systems our colleagues around the CSU system are using to help enhance our teacher recruitment and outreach efforts.
