The New Hampshire IHE Network was created with the primary aim of working collegially to influence policy makers and engage practitioners regarding innovative and creative educator preparation and development programs in New Hampshire. Since the inception of the Network in 2011, they have devoted our energies toward changing the way the 15 higher education teacher preparation programs in the state work together—first, by acknowledging that they had not been doing so, and then, by making the deliberate choice to trust each other, move out of a competitive mindset, shift into a framework of shared responsibility, openly exchange knowledge and strategies, develop more open communication channels with the state Department of Education, and actually work together for the benefit of all graduates as they begin their teaching careers.
As informed advocates for the teaching profession, they seek to promote innovative programs and policies that interconnect initial educator preparation, new educator induction, and on-going professional development. Their goal is to create a supportive and lifelong learning framework for educators and learners. They seek to work collaboratively throughout the state, and with the DOE to address and help implement the major issues facing PreK-12 Education and Higher Education (e.g., Teacher Evaluation, Common Core, School and District Accountability).
