Through real classrooms, diverse practicums and experienced research-driven faculty, Bloomsburg University's College of Education pairs a strong teaching foundation with quality field experiences to broaden the teacher candidate’s understanding of effective classroom instruction and establish a platform for putting theory and research into practice.

Exceptionality Programs

Exceptional youth pose a unique range of academic and social challenges to teachers, who in turn play a critical role in the challenged learner’s ability to integrate into the classroom.

Through the College of Education's Conceptual Framework vision, the Department of Exceptionality Programs develops students into transforming educators who not only effectively manage constant change but also meet the individualized needs of their future students.

Teaching and Learning

Teachers have an impactful role in the life of a developing child through mentoring, advocating and fostering learning. And as the child learner develops, the teacher continues to be a big influence in the classroom as a role model and support mechanism.

Through the College of Education's Conceptual Framework vision, the Department of Teaching and Learning develops students into responsible educators who provide a safe, caring and effective classroom environment for their future students. It also provides students with a strong foundation of research-proven teaching methods in specific subject and discipline areas to effectively prepare their future students for the next step of their lives.

Adverse Childhood Experiences

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

The role adversity plays during a student’s development is important to understand as it can have both academic and behavioral consequences. All students, to varying degrees, experience adversity at some point in time during their formative years. Students also have their own characteristics and experiences that help to protect them and develop resilience when exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

Resilience is a positive adaptation that can develop within the context of adversity. Resilience is the result of a dynamic set of interactions between a child’s adverse experiences and his/her protective factors (Rutter, 1985). This interaction is what determines the developmental path towards health and well-being or illness and dysfunction (e.g., substance abuse). No child is magically resilient or invulnerable to ACEs.
