Grant Award: LAUNCHING EDUCATORS FOR ALL LEARNERS

The Judith Herb College of Education has recently been awarded a grant from the Ohio’s Dean Compact.

The project, entitled Launching Educators for All Learners: UToledo’s Dual License Initiative, will redesign the University of Toledo’s successful graduate-level licensure programs for middle childhood education and adolescent and young adult education. The outcome of this work will result in inclusive graduate-level teacher preparation programs which prepare educators to meet the needs of all learners, particularly those with diverse learning needs. The revised programs will be grounded in culturally responsive practices and leads to dual licensure (e.g., middle childhood education + 4-9 intervention specialist; adolescent young adult education + 7-12 intervention specialist) and a Master of Education.

The two year project is in collaboration with school partners Toledo Public Schools and Washington Local Schools. The co-principal investigators are Richard Welsch, Jenny Denyer, and Rebecca Schneider.

Program redesign is an exciting opportunity to ensure further Rocket educators are well prepared for launching their careers as educators.
