Opportunities and Outcomes
Drexel University School of Education
At Drexel University’s School of Education, we are committed to producing qualified teachers with the skills to be effective in today’s classrooms. In addition to being aligned with National INTASC Teaching Standards and the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Four Domains of Professional Teaching, the School of Education has identified five program outcomes that put Drexel graduates at the top of their field.
The School of Education strives to prepare teacher candidates who:
- Demonstrate independent and creative academic teacher leadership skills that can be applied in the classroom, school community and profession.
- Understand the changing role of the educator in an increasingly diverse society from both an urban and a global perspective and apply this understanding in the classroom, school community and profession.
- Demonstrate the ability to reflect upon their professional practice during engagement in experiential learning and against a framework of best practice supported by educational research.
- Demonstrate a strong academic background in all subject areas that meet PDE content requirements with an emphasis on STEM and can effectively integrate tools of technology in curriculum, assessment and instruction to enhance PK–12 student learning.
- Demonstrate the ability to create and maintain a positive and democratic classroom climate that supports and facilitates learning for all students.
To help our students reach these outcomes, Drexel’s program includes extraordinary learning opportunities such as:
- Field observation and exploration
- Student teaching
- Cooperative learning experiences
