Special Education Collaborative


REGISTER for SPED Collaborative - Summer Academy - July 16, 2024

The SPED Collaborative @ MTSU, is an initiative offering professional development for Special Education teachers, assistants and administrators in PK-12 schools and districts in Tennessee.  The SPED Collaborative is part of a broader professional development initiative known as the PK-12 Collaborative @ MTSU, which also includes the ELL Collaborative and the School Counselors Collaborative. The PK-12 Collaborative is offered by the Center for Educational Media and Professional Development in MTSU’s College of Education. We will offer SPED Collaborative sessions during the school year, as well as a summer conference, the SPED Collaborative Summer Academy. 

The SPED Collaborative:

  • Is participant-driven, with special education teachers identifying the topics of sessions based on their needs
  • Is collaborative with special education teachers and administrators serving as presenters to share strategies, materials, programs, technology that have been successful for them
  • Promotes professional support networks and individual contacts across districts which is especially beneficial for districts with fewer resources and staff to support SPED students and programs
  • Offers multiple PD sessions throughout the school year to address topics and apply new ideas immediately in the school settings
