Welcome to the Department of Teaching and Learning
The Department of Teaching and Learning (T&L) actively recruits, develops, equips, and supports culturally competent educators who engage all learners in meaningful explorations generating rigorous outcomes and who reflect on their practices and professionalism to enhance their self-efficacy.
The Teaching and Learning Department includes the undergraduate middle level program for grades 4-8 with content area tracks in language arts, social studies, math and science, STEM program, 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 various different specialty tracks. 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 two tracks: 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 4210 and EDUC 1300 as well as professional education courses for secondary education majors.
