The Bagwell College of Education (BCOE) is one of the largest and strongest teacher preparation units in the University System of Georgia offering bachelor’s, master’s, educational specialist, and doctor of education degree programs. All educator preparation programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and approved by Georgia’s Professional Standards Commission (PSC). As a member of the Renaissance Group, BCOE continues its advancement toward meeting the challenges of national and state reforms for teacher education as well as program expansion.  The college received an $8.9 million Teacher Quality Partnership grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The BCOE houses the iTeach Center that provides professional learning, consulting, and service for Georgia educators in 11 school systems within metro Atlanta and North Georgia.  Recently, the BCOE launched the Center for Literacy and Learning, a facility where P-12 striving readers are assessed and tutored by graduate students.  In collaboration with the College of Science and Mathematics, the Bagwell College of Education established the Advancing the Teaching of Mathematics and Science (ATOMS) Center.

KSU’s conceptual framework for educator preparation is the Collaborative Development of Expertise in Teaching, Learning, and Leadership.

PTEU, the university’s umbrella organization for preparing educators, includes fourteen departments from five colleges all of which collaborate on the design, delivery, approval, and accreditation of all educator preparation programs. The PTEU serves as a model of university-wide responsibility for teacher education; field-based collaboration with practicing professionals and partner schools; infusion of technology for enhanced teaching and learning; and best practices for the inclusion of English learners and students with disabilities.
