Teacher Preparation: Georgia State University has more than a dozen graduate degree programs in the College of Education and Human Development to complement their excellent undergraduate teacher preparation program–in 2015-2016 99% of GSU’s initial teacher preparation candidates passed the edTPA performance assessment required for certification in Georgia.
In June of 2016, Joyce E. Many, Carla Tanguay, Sheryl Moss, and Tracy McKinney from GSU presented to other CEEDAR intensive participants about how GSU is working to break down departmental silos and pursue common college-wide reform goals.
At the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Teacher Education Division annual conference in 2016, a team of CEEDAR and GSU personnel discussed how general education, special education, and leadership faculty members worked collaboratively on common reform efforts at GSU.
Joyce Many, associate dean of undergraduate studies and educator preparation in the College of Education and Human Development at GSU, shared GSU’s progress as a part of a conversation on program review and enhancement at the 2016 CEEDAR-IRIS Cross-State Convening.
