The College of Education is transforming the way educators will impact our future. Our nationally recognized teacher preparation program features coursework that translates to practical classroom skills, a yearlong residency in a school district co-teaching alongside a skilled mentor teacher, and the use of state-of-the-art digital technology to record, review and improve instruction.
Our line of sister programs - TechTeach Across Texas and TechTeach Across Rural Texas - brings the innovative training model around the state, allowing aspiring educators to be prepared in their communities and in the classrooms where they will teach after graduation.
Housed in the College of Education, University-School Partnerships for the Renewal of Educator Preparation National Center (US PREP) provides on-the-ground support and services to a coalition of university-based teacher preparation programs around the country. US PREP currently assists 15 school-university partners in attracting, training and retaining high quality, diverse teachers for underserved communities.
