EDUCATION

REALIZE THE JOY OF FORMING THE NEXT GENERATION

Teaching is not simply a career, it’s a calling to form the next generation of thinkers. That’s why we take our Education program very seriously. We aim to provide you with everything necessary to feed the hungry hearts and souls of the students who will ultimately be placed in your care.

Skills You will Gain

1. Proficiency in Teaching Strategies – In this program, you’ll analyze learning theories and their application in a classroom setting. You’ll learn the process of planning for and choosing effective instructional strategies to enhance student learning and how to effectively and appropriately integrate different types of technology into the instructional process.

2. Classroom Management – You’ll grasp the major theories animating educational and classroom management at the micro and macro levels. Topics will include: student behavior, discussion of effective classroom rules and procedures, school safety, parental involvement and strategies for creating a positive, safe environment to meet the needs of all students.

3. Practical Knowledge of Educational Psychology – Examine learning theories and models of teaching with particular attention to examining the philosophical, developmental and psychological roots of various approaches. In doing so, you’ll more accurately assess current trends in schooling and the psychological and cultural foundations behind them.
