Advisory Board of Teacher Education (ABTE)
The COEHS values the collaboration and support of our P-12 school partners to ensure that high quality clinical practice is central to our educator preparation programs.
The Advisory Board for Teacher Education consists of unit faculty as well as P-12 teachers and administrators, and meets three times a year to discuss and share responsibility for continuous improvement of our candidate preparation.
The Board is involved in analysis of multiple measures of candidate progress and completer achievements in order to evaluate programs, make recommendations for improvement, and identify models of excellence.
