Mission

The School of Education (SOE) supports and facilitates the shared vision of IUNorthwest by collaborating and cooperating with other educational institutions, external partners, and surrounding communities to further excellence in educational processes and enhance the overall quality of life in those communities.
In light of these commitments, the mission of the SOE at IU Northwest is to prepare professional educators who have the knowledge, skills, and dispositions essential for becoming reflective professionals and master educators.
Reflective professionals are those who, in light of current research and best practice, exercise reasoned judgment to:

  • critically examine their professional practices
  • make informed decisions
  • effectively facilitate the learning of their students

Master educators are those who incorporate a rich understanding of content knowledge and best professional practices to renew themselves and their professional practice through inquiry and professional development.

Return to General Information

Accreditation

The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools fully accredit IU Northwest. The Indiana Professional Standard Board has approved all IU Northwest SOE programs for teacher and administrative licensing through the bachelor’s and master’s levels.

Services

Academic Advisement
This service helps students plan a complete program of studies leading to a degree and/or teacher licensing. Students must consult their advisors before registering for classes each semester.

Ombudsperson
Each academic year one faculty member is designated to be the ombudsperson for the students in the School of Education. The function of the ombudsperson is to meet with students to resolve their problems. There are no restrictions placed on students concerning any problems and/or ideas discussed. The discussions will be handled strictly on a confidential basis. The name of the current ombudsperson is available in the Office of Education Student Services.

Licensure
The School of Education provides services for obtaining teaching licenses. Additional information is available in the Office of Education Student Services.

Credit Transfers Policies

Two major concerns underlie this policy: program integrity and fairness. The SOE ensures program integrity through counseling and mentoring by faculty. Fairness is ensured through collaborative planning by the student and his/her faculty mentor.

Credit transfer is administered by the IU Northwest admissions office and the academic advisor of the SOE with the advice of appropriate faculty, including the student’s faculty advisor. Formal appeals of decisions and the consideration of requests for exceptions to existing policy are provided for by a standing committee of the faculty of the SOE.

Credit transfers for a course must not be confused with performance criteria for a degree, certificate, or license. Most programs of the SOE require performance criteria that are evidenced by portfolio artifacts. Course completion or credit transfer does not, by itself, constitute meeting performance criteria. While it may be possible to include work done apart from courses taken at IU Northwest within a required portfolio, performance criteria required for degrees, certificates, or licenses awarded by the SOE must be demonstrated after acceptance into the school.

Academic work from a regionally accredited college or university that is certified by the state of Indiana, or a body of similar stature, to offer teacher education and for which a student grade is at or above the level of C, may be transferred for credit but will be transferred for program requirements subject to the following conditions.

  1. Undergraduate or graduate students who have successfully completed any course at any other Indiana University campus that is part of a program at IU Northwest will receive full credit for that course. Products or performances that are required for any academic objective at IU Northwest must however still be demonstrated. Assistance toward meeting performance criteria at IUNorthwest is provided, in part, through enrolling and completing credit courses. A student who has transferred such course credit will be given assistance as may be needed toward meeting performance criteria by being allowed to attend the course at IU Northwest without having to re-enroll or pay tuition for it. Similar arrangements may be possible for other transfer students. These will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  2. The last 30 credit hours of any undergraduate degree program to be awarded by IU Northwest must be completed after being admitted to the SOE at IU Northwest.
  3. Acceptance into a degree, certificate, license or endorsement program must be accompanied with an approved program of studies that has been validated by appropriate faculty and certification advisors within the SOE at IU Northwest.

Urban Teacher Education Program

The Urban Teacher Education Program (UTEP) is experience-rich, field-based, and leads to teacher licensing in selected areas through undergraduate and graduate programs, Option I and Option II, respectively.

Option I is designed for undergraduates and offers a unique opportunity for those enrolled in the SOE to do a yearlong experience in an urban professional development school and obtain certification in elementary or secondary education.

Option II is designed for graduate students who have obtained degrees from accredited institutions in subjects other than education. This option offers the opportunity for graduate students to do a yearlong internship in both urban middle and high school settings and obtain certification in a secondary education field.

UTEP is committed to the development of “star” urban teachers as supported by the research on effective teaching in urban schools. The program ensures that preservice teachers are exposed to “best practice” in urban teaching, through the collaborative mentorship of school-based and university-based faculty members.

Graduates of the program are given “first consideration” in hiring by the urban districts of East Chicago, Gary, and Hammond.

Academic Regulations

Semester Load
A full-time undergraduate student is expected to carry 12-17 credit hours of academic work a semester. If students have made a cumulative grade point average of at least B (3.0) in all work taken at Indiana University, they may receive permission from the dean or director of Education Student Services to carry 18 credit hours or more in a semester. Education students are encouraged not to enroll in more than 6 credit hours of academic work during either Summer Session. It is recommended that a person who is employed full time take no more than 6 credit hours of academic work.

Correspondence Courses
Undergraduate students in residence carrying regular academic work in the SOE may take academic correspondence work through the Independent Study Division of the School of Continuing Studies only in exceptional cases and with the permission of the director of Education Student Services. If a correspondence course is to apply toward graduation requirements during the same semester, it must be successfully completed at least 15 days prior to the close of regular classes at IU Northwest.

Students will not be given credit toward a teaching license or the Bachelor of Science degree in education for more than 18 credit hours of academic work through correspondence. Of these credit hours, only a maximum of 9 credit hours in a major subject area and 6 credit hours in a minor subject area may be used. Professional education courses may not be taken by correspondence.

Electives
Free electives for SH/JH/MS majors are those courses applied toward the required credit hour total, but not applied to the area of general education, professional education, subject major, or subject minor. Courses numbered 100 or higher may be used as free electives. No College of Arts and Sciences J-courses and no courses without a departmental prefix may be used as electives.

Good Standing
To maintain good standing within the SOE, undergraduate students must keep a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5. Students whose GPA falls below 2.5 will be placed on probation. Students whose GPA remains below 2.5 a second semester will be placed on strict academic probation.

Students on strict academic probation whose GPA does not rise above 2.5 will be dismissed from the SOE.

Admission and Reinstatement Appeals
A student whose enrollment was terminated by the SOE may petition for reinstatement to the Education Admission and Reinstatement Committee.

Credit Transfer Policy for Baccalaureate Degrees
Undergraduate students wishing to transfer from other institutions should first call or write the admissions office at IU Northwest for information concerning admission and transfer of credit. Even though credit hours are transferred through the admissions office, they may or may not be applicable to degree programs in the SOE. The SOE determines the acceptance of transferred credit.

Undergraduate Admission
Admission to the School of Education expires upon receipt of a degree, upon completion of special admission work, or when no work has been completed on this campus in a period of two calendar years. Students must then reapply for admission to the school.

Field Experiences
When applying for admission to an undergraduate education program, students should know that each semester of the education sequence has a field experience course.

  • Communications Skills
  • Higher-Order Thinking Skills
  • Instructional Media and Technology
  • Learning and Development
  • School Culture and Diversity
  • Instructional Design and Delivery
  • Classroom Management
  • Assessment and Evaluation
  • Professional Development

Student Portfolio
The student portfolio shall consist of artifacts created by the student that demonstrate the acquisition of the knowledge and skills within each of the nine initial program outcomes. The student will begin to create the portfolio prior to entering the TEP. Specific portfolio checkpoints have been established in both the elementary and secondary programs. The portfolio must be completed prior to graduating.

Admission to the Teacher Education Program

  1. Application for admission to the Teacher Education Program must be filed prior to the beginning of the semester in which students plan to start.

Students are discouraged from taking additional academic work during the same semester of enrollment in student teaching.
The Director of Student Teaching and Field Experiences shall be the sole judge as to whether the student has met the requirements for admission to, and continuing in, the Student Teaching Program.

Completion of the Student Teaching Program and Application for a Teaching License

  1. Obtain a satisfactory recommendation from the Director of Student Teaching and Field Experiences
  2. Pass the final portfolio checkpoint.

The student will be eligible for a teaching license when the baccalaureate degree has been granted, the Praxis tests have been passed, a limited criminal background check shows no negative activity, and fees required by the Indiana Department of Education have been paid.

The necessary application forms for a teaching license may be obtained from the Office of Education Student Services. When these forms have been completed, along with other required materials, they should be returned to the office for processing and submission to the Division of Professional Standards. This work often takes six to eight weeks.
