  • A New Look!

    2021-09-15

    The JOSEP website got a little upgade!

    We updated our homepage inforgraphic to capture the essence of our mission:

    We believe that research should drive the design and delivery of special education faculty's coursework and practicum experiences for preservice teachers. With effective and abundant practice opportunities, faculty can ensure that future special education teachers are entering the field profession-ready to enhance the academic and social/emotional outcomes of all students.

    We are currently working hard to bring you the second issue of JOSEP (scheduled for December 2021) on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in special education teacher preparation.

    In the meantime, be sure to download and share with your colleagues our first issue on high-leverage practices.
