Educator Development: Get the what, why, how & who
If you have questions about the clinical portion of the university's new Educator Development program, here's your chance to get answers. The Institute of Professional Educator Development (IPED) invites you to programs Tuesday and Wednesday in the Student Center.
Titled "Educator Development Clinical Program Overview: What is that? Why? How? Who?" the programs take place Tuesday at 1 p.m. in the Poplar Room and Wednesday at 1 p.m. in the Spruce Room.
IPED Director Pat Hoffman made the launch of the program official earlier this month getting an enthusiastic response from a roomful of educators and colleagues. Educator Development will welcome its first 20 to 40 students to a program during fall semester 2013.
At the time of the launch, Hoffman said Educator Development is recruiting students for teacher licensure programs in biology, chemistry, English, history, mathematics, political science, and sociology. Programs in history, middle childhood-early adolescence, broad field social studies, and broad field science, she said, are in development.A summary of the April 5 launch is available on the university web site. Tuesday's and Wednesday's programs are open to all faculty and staff.
