Message from the Chair

Learning to teach is a journey that is full of provocative people and delightful mysteries. The dedicated members of the faculty value collaboration, community diversity, global perspectives, inquiry and reflection and will map out this journey for you.

As you travel toward your destination, at each leg on this journey, you will encounter the ideas of influential educators who will introduce perspectives on critical issues of learning, teaching, and social justice at global and local levels. Together, we will seek deep interconnections among theory, research, and practice.

We promise that along the road we will examine the thoughts of great educators and engage you in meaningful experiences filled with excellent support services that help you develop the skills, the self-knowledge and self-confidence you need to achieve your personal and professional goals; at the same time we will guide you to advance the knowledge of and professional practice of teaching and learning that you will take with you on the ever continuing journey of learning to teach.
