The Flagler College Education Department is committed to providing students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for pursuing professional careers in Education.
The Department acknowledges that the Education profession is becoming an increasingly challenging one, demanding greater competence, wider versatility, and broader values of its practitioners. Prospective teachers must expand their knowledge of the human experience. They must acquire a comprehensive body of subject area knowledge and an extensive repertoire of instructional strategies.
They must also develop a set of professional attitudes which will enhance educational practice in a culturally-diverse and technologically-advancing society. To these ends, the Department maintains high academic and performance standards and provides students with a solid base of academic content and pedagogic theory and skills.
