Five Core Components of Eureka College Teacher Education Program
- Content knowledge
- Classroom management
- Teaching strategies
Our coursework provides opportunities to utilize the specific, evidence-based instructional practices needed for success across our five core components of the Teacher Education Conceptual Framework.
Coursework in the Teacher Education Program encompasses a common framework known as Universal Design for Learning. This provides skills necessary to teach a diverse range of students. Our candidates are prepared for an inclusive classroom, where Evidence-Based Practices are addressed for the needs of students with varied backgrounds, learning styles and abilities.
Technology integration maintains a strong focus in select coursework. Scheduled lab times provide opportunities to equip and prepare students for the digital learning environment.
Courses also involve exposure to co-teaching techniques which equips students to plan, instruct and collaborate with peers. Students will also explore multiple learning opportunities through the micro-teaching model. This allows students to deliver lessons, receive specific and immediate feedback, and reflect upon their teaching to help better their craft.
