Texas Tech University, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Angelo State University

The College of Education has been involved in teacher education reform for the past two years. The National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) began promoting a Transformational Initiative (TI) option for universities conducting research on educator preparation programs. The TI option encourages universities to pursue reform efforts, document results, and inform the field while engaging in an accreditation process. The TTU College of Education is one of 28 universities following the TI option. In this presentation the presenters will discuss the ways in which we are combining accreditation and educational reform.
