Design and Implementation Teams

Their Charge: “Imagine the Possibilities”

Nine TEI design teams composed of college faculty and P-12 educators have moved the Trustees Education Initiative forward, applying “Big Idea” thinking and nuts-and-bolts pragmatism. Design team liaisons contributed further expertise and perspectives. Together, they established a path forward for TEI innovations and integrating the UW-E4® model into the UW elementary and early childhood educator preparation programs. Secondary Education, Special Education, and Education Leadership programs will take up the process as the initiative continues to be implemented.
