The conceptual framework of the teacher education program focuses on the decision-making processes of teaching and learning.
The model for ESU is ESU Educators: Reflective and Deliberate Decision-Makers.
The beginning teacher must demonstrate knowledge and skill outcomes in four broad domains:
- The Learner and Learning Environment
- The Teaching and Learning Process
The model is supported through a mission statement, professional commitments, learning style practices and university and school initiatives.
