Special Program Highlights for a Bachelor of Technical Education
Our Bachelor of Technical Education graduates hold a strong reputation around the world. Often they are specifically requested for internship placement in places such as China and Australia.
Technical Education professors stay abreast of current literature and methodology discussed in professional journals so our students learn the very latest techniques and approaches. Students learn to use the latest classroom technology including such resources as Smart boards, student response systems, digital document cameras and infrared classroom sound amplification.
The program includes 18 weeks in the classroom – 2 weeks of observation and 16 consecutive weeks of actual teaching experience. Students complete their first semester coursework before they are in a classroom so they can get maximum benefit from their observations.
