Conceptual Framework

A conceptual framework establishes the shared vision for the School of Education's efforts in preparing educators to work in P-12 schools.  It provides direction for programs, courses, teaching, candidate performance, scholarship, service, and unit accountability.  The conceptual framework is knowledge-based, articulated, shared, coherent, consistent with the School of Education and William Carey University's mission, and continuously evaluated. The conceptual framework provides the bases that describes the School of Education's intellectual philosophy, which distinguishes W.C.U graduates.
