AACTE’s Committee on Professional Preparation and Accountability has selected Stacy K. Duffield, professor in the College of Human Development and Education at North Dakota State University, to receive the 2018 AACTE Edward C. Pomeroy Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teacher Education. The award will be presented at the 70th AACTE Annual Meeting Closing Keynote session, March 3 in Baltimore, Maryland.The Pomeroy Award, named for longtime AACTE Executive Director Edward C. Pomeroy, is one of the Association’s highest honors, recognizing distinguished service either to the educator preparation community or to the development and promotion of outstanding practices in educator preparation at the collegiate, state, or national level. Duffield stands out in all of these categories.
Indeed, Duffield has presented at many workshops and conferences of AACTE and other professional organizations; she will be presenting the Student Teacher Observation Tool along with colleagues at the upcoming AACTE Annual Meeting. She has also served as a site visitor for state and national accreditation teams and led a collaborative effort between the state’s Education Standards and Practices Board and NDACTE representatives to discuss effective strategies for institutions to transition from old to new accreditation standards. She teaches graduate and undergraduate middle-level and literacy education, has served as teacher education program coordinator since 2009, and was assessment and accreditation coordinator from 2007 to 2013.
“Dr. Stacy Duffield is an exemplary leader in the field of education,” said Margaret Fitzgerald, dean of the College of Human Development and Education at North Dakota State University. “She embraces the land-grant mission of the university through teaching, research, and outreach and has been a game changer in creating university partnerships that help teachers and school systems excel. She is highly regarded for her innovative efforts, her skills in measuring student and program learning outcomes, and her ability to conceptualize and execute programs that make a difference in students’ lives.”
