Welcome to the Department of Teaching and Learning
The Department of Teaching and Learning (T&L) is committed to developing educators who care deeply about learners, who reflect on their practice to make sound decisions, who communicate effectively with all constituents, and who meaningfully challenge learners and themselves through high expectations.
The Teaching and Learning Department includes the undergraduate middle level program for grades 4-8 (Math/Science or Language Arts/Social Studies) and secondary education in various content areas. Graduate level programs in the department include the interdisciplinary graduate program, Advanced Studies in Teaching and Learning (ASTL) which has four different specialty tracks: Early Childhood Education; Middle Level Education; Instructor Facilitator; and Content Emphasis with approved Subject Area. The Department is also home to the award winning Master of Arts in Teaching Program (MAT) that is designed for those with a bachelor’s degree in an area other than teaching to complete requirements for an initial teaching license in Arkansas. The MAT program has three tracks: P-4 Early Childhood Education, 4-8 Middle Level Education, and secondary education in several licensure content areas. In addition, department faculty provide instruction in education core classes such as EDUC 1240, EDUC 4210 and EDUC 1300 as well as professional education courses for secondary education majors (e.g., MSIT 4305).
We look forward to assisting you with any of your educational needs. We invite you to visit the department located in Mashburn 104.
