School of Education and Human Development
The School of Education and Human Development (SOEHD) has
established as its primary mission the maintenance of quality educational
programs designed to prepare teachers and other educational leaders for
service in public and private schools and other educational institutions.
Emphasis is directed toward preparing highly competent educators and human development specialists, providing professional support and leadership to the area community, promoting applied research, and providing experiences and opportunities that will enable employed professionals to remain current in their fields.
The 1996-97 academic year will find students attending classes, studying, and working in a state-of -the-art Education Building. This new five-story facility offers clinical areas and computer and microteaching laboratories. One of the special features is a Human Development Center that is organized for observation and teaching young children, from infants through age six.
SOEHD directs its full attention to the enhancement of human potential so those who work in the field of education and human development function more effectively and productively in an ever -changing and increasingly diverse society.
The SOEHD theme Making a Difference in a Diverse Society places considerable emphasis on an educator who can function effectively as both a practitioner and leader in a highly complex culturally and linguistically diverse society.
The theme is operationalized through two instructional models. The basic preparation programs model is The Reflective Collaborative Practitioner, a highly effective teacher who continues to remain on the "cutting edge" of professional practice. The advanced programs model is The Reflective Collaborative Leader who effectively serves in leadership roles as a teaching specialist or provider of specialized services in support of instruction.
