Anne Beitlers, associate teaching professor and director of the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP), was quoted in an article published by The Post Journal about how the pandemic has prompted change in how future teachers are trained. Many U.S. educator preparation programs are incorporating more digital tools, online instruction and mental and emotional wellness in their courses to reflect takeaways from the pandemic. In particular, the prominence of technology will have benefits regardless of the pandemic's course and teaching programs are giving more emphasis on how to plan and implement quality virtual learning.
