Trustees Education Initiative

Transforming Educator Preparation

The trustees started by asking

“What would it take?”


To ensure Wyoming has vibrant, innovative teachers for early childhood programs and its K-12 system, the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees established the UW Trustees Education Initiative (TEI) by resolution in 2014.


Enterprise for Elevating Educational Excellence

UW-E4® is the UW framework for TEI. It provides a teacher preparation journey that emphasizes four Es: career exploration, experiential learning for pre-service teachers, embedded practice in Wyoming districts, and continued support during entry into the profession so students become top-tier, preeminent educators for Wyoming and beyond.

The UW College of Education will implement the Trustees Education Initiative with these key innovations integrated into UW-E4.


Coaching to help good teachers become great

Wyoming Coaching Laboratory (WYCOLA®) brings together instructional facilitators, mentors, and coaches from school districts throughout Wyoming. Observing active classroom teaching by master teachers and engaging in conversations with their peers are among the WYCOLA activities.


Avatars to help develop skills

Mursion® augmented reality lets high school students, emerging pre-service teachers, and teaching leaders practice basic and complex teaching, coaching, and leadership skills with avatars in a simulated environment.


Integrated ethics training

The Ethical Educator Program® is based on the Model Code of Ethics for Educators. Responsibility to students, the school community, and the profession, as well as professional competence and responsible use of technology are interwoven throughout teacher training.

 

A boost for early childhood education

Wyoming Early Childhood Outreach Network (WYECON®) is supporting a network of early childhood educators and clinical sites in Wyoming.


Results that get measured

The College of Education participates in the Common Indicators System® from Deans for Impact, a national consortium of high-performing programs that use a common set of metrics to support innovation and drive excellence in educator preparation.
