Conceptual Framework and Assessment

The Conceptual Framework provides the foundation for the work of the Division at Lindsey Wilson College.The four Key Concepts of Knowledge, Pedagogy, Leadership, and Reflective Best Practice are aligned to their impact on P-12 student achievement, the Kentucky Teacher Standards and Lindsey Wilson College's Student Learning Outcomes. The Continuous Assessment Model in both initial and advanced programs depicts how the Unit evaluates candidates based on their professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions and how these directly affect P-12 student achievement. Diversity and technology, vital components that impact learning are also addressed through candidate tasks. Through a constructivist approach to learning, the Unit prepares candidates to be effective teachers that positively impact P-12 students, and by preparing them to be teacher leaders to both students and their communities.
