Welcome and thank you for your great interest in the Institute of Education (IOE) at KWASU. Our Institute combines small classes, high quality instruction, and research based best practices, which all are grounded in local schools, classrooms and community settings. Our academic and non-academic staff is our greatest asset we have to offer you. Each is enormously talented in their area of expertise and is committed to furthering your education to meet your career goals. The IOE has a conceptual framework with a vision statement that guides our work: "To promote an inclusive and a conducive environment to support caring professional educators for the future, so that all learners achieve their fullest potential". The Conceptual Framework and information on people and programs are provided in this handbook and on the KWASU IOE website.
I invite you to browse our site to learn more about the IOE, our staff, and professional preparation programs. Please contact us if you would like additional information.

Our Vision

Our vision is the development of world class educators to lead a diverse community of learners toward an understanding of and active participation in a highly complex world. In doing so, we seek to be a community of diverse teacher leaders who ensure exemplary learning and wellness opportunities for all individuals.

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of the Institute of Education is the promotion of manpower development to meet the challenging needs of our educational institutions particularly primary and secondary schools.

The overarching theme of KWASU Institute of Education's conceptual framework is "Making the TeachingóLearning Connection." As our theme, Making the Teaching and Learning Connection, demonstrates, we highly value learning: our own learning, candidate learning, and, foremost, student learning.
