Why Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education?

Your Passion, Our Purpose.

Our teacher education program is one of the best. While there is no secret to what we do, our program is distinctive.

Do you have a commitment to help children, family, and community through improved educational opportunities?

The Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education (TLTE) is committed to the preparation and development of educators across the profession. Our programs aim to support prospective and practicing educators as they build on their own experiences and further develop their professional identities. We engage students in informed conversations about concrete teaching and learning issues and provide opportunities for students to consider wise judgments regarding the complex issues educators face today.

The department of TLTE offers more subject area specializations than any other post-secondary institution in Nebraska. These specializations allow us to provide 38 endorsements in elementary or secondary education.
