The university goal surrounding this priority is all about achieving academic excellence, expanding learning experiences for both faculty and students and ensuring that the curriculum, technology and faculty are current and relevant through revamping the Early Childhood Education program.
In reconstructing the program the faculty-teaching in Early Childhood Education will be expected to retool through various professional development activities; core curriculum must have greater alignment with the GACE II exam; and ultimately the program must have key assessments that are integrated, aligned with state and national standards and most importantly regularly and systematically analyzed and evaluated for continuous improvement.
During the 2012-2013 year, the focus will be on assessing and restructuring the core curriculum and faculty development. The Faculty will be introduced to new methodologies, practices materials, hardware and software that should inform their professional knowledge, skills and value system associated with the discipline. All of this will be carried out through lectures, trainings and workshops to improve their knowledge of content and content delivery congruent with the 21st century demands of the P-5 classroom.
