An Effective Teaching Program

At North Greenville University, the College of Education (COE) seeks to prepare teachers who have a deep understanding of content and teaching methods, and also deep understanding of students and how they as future teachers will impact students. Our teacher education program prepares teachers to facilitate studentsí learning and promote studentsí holistic wellbeing. We envision our graduates teaching effectively, leading through example and continually learning the art and science of the teaching profession. The College of Education regularly seeks performance-based data in order to document, analyze, and determine if our programs are effective. The analysis of such data enables the COE to make improvements in the way we prepare teachers to impact students and meet their needs.
