About Us

The mission of the Department of Education is to prepare learner sensitive educators with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to contribute to a better society.

The Learner Sensitive Educator Conceptual Framework is the shared foundation for all education programs at UMD. The framework is built on a foundation of professional standards and emphasizes five themes:

  • Collaboration
  • Reflection
  • Empowerment
  • Social Justice
  • Technology

In addition to preparing teachers for licensure in P-12 settings, the department provides a wide range of in-service and graduate programs for educators in school and non-school settings. Department faculty are also engaged in a variety of research and development activities related to teaching and learning.
