COLUMBUS, Ga. — Top Columbus State University education faculty hosted 15 of their colleagues from seven Georgia universities recently to discuss upcoming changes in teacher education requirements.
The March 7 event that brought together the education faculty responsible at their schools for assessment — making sure students meet those requirements — was organized and led by Barbara C. Buckner, dean of CSU’s College of Education and Health Professions, and Sallie A. Miller, associate dean for assessment and accreditation.
Participants are part of a task force currently working to align Georgia-mandated teacher assessments to national standards. The assessment directors also discussed and documented issues related to the three-year induction process that graduates must successfully complete to receive their professional teaching certificates.
The task force is expected to issue a full report of its findings.
