Innovation Initiative: Meaningful solutions for today’s classrooms

In Purdue University College of Education, we are preparing teachers to focus on unique challenges by finding meaningful and lasting solutions for today’s classrooms and schools.

Our Innovation Initiative is a full revision of our teacher licensure programs. Each program will prepare you to become a teacher by offering real-world experience while completing your degree, better preparing you for your own classroom.

The Innovation Initiative curriculum focuses on more field experience in schools, community-connected field experiences, preparation for hybrid and virtual teaching, mentoring beyond graduation, and meeting the needs of all learners.

With more options while earning your degree, you will be more prepared to take your next giant leap!
