Teacher Education

Majors:

Endorsements:

Certificates:

The University of Dayton's Department of Teacher Education has adopted a theme that is integrated throughout the program of study and is consistent with the school-wide conceptual framework. The theme of "Teacher as Reflective Decision Maker in a Pluralistic Society" is appropriate because of the complex needs of students from diverse backgrounds. The department adopted this theme in accordance with the University's Marianist mission which encourages students to take an active role in improving the larger community, and also reflects the unit outcomes for the SOEAP which include:

  • Embracing diversity
  • Building community
  • Engaging in critical reflection
  • Developing as scholarly practitioner

The Department has established a selection and retention policy that requires students to demonstrate throughout their program of study a 2.5 grade-point average overall, in professional education courses, and in teaching fields; ability to pass all three sections of Praxis I, and competency in demonstrating particular objectives in field-based experiences. To receive a provisional license at the completion of their programs, all students are required to pass the Praxis II examination(s) mandated by Ohio's Department of Education, verify they are of "good moral character," and have a valid, acceptable background check (fingerprint checks - Ohio and national - on file with the Ohio Department of Education).

Teacher Education Undergraduate Academic policies
  1. Candidates for undergraduate licensure are placed in schools in the Miami Valley area for all clinical experiences. Student teaching is the capstone clinical experience for the preparation programs. Once students have been approved and placed for student teaching, they may not withdraw from the program except with the approval of the department chairperson. A student who withdraws without this approval forfeits future placement in student teaching.
  2. An education course taken as an independent study cannot be applied toward teacher licensure.
  3. Independent study is not available for regularly scheduled undergraduate courses.
  4. Candidates must meet each of the following benchmarks:
  • Cumulative grade point average must be ≥ 2.5
  • Grade point average in each teaching concentration must be ≥ 2.5 prior to entry into the clinical experience (methods)
  • Grade point average in professional education courses must be ≥ 2.5 after completing EDT 110 and the program specific development course, and maintained at ≥ 2.5 thereafter
  • PRAXIS I: Must pass/be exempt all sections
  • Grade of C- or higher in all EDT courses
  • Grade of S in all EDT labs prior to entry into clinical experience
  • Unexcused absences in a Teacher Education course cannot exceed 13% in any given course
