Welcome to the School of Education

Benedictine University’s School of Education equips candidates with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that will shape and influence learning through critical thinking, research-based decisions, and best practices. These practices produce outcomes for teacher candidates to become highly effective practitioners who actively engage with content to promote critical thinking skills, innovatively manage the learning environment, and consistently monitor student progress to adjust curriculum delivery while collaborating with others to positively impact students, the community, and the professional field. As an integrated whole, the conceptual framework contains the overarching purpose of the unit: to create effective practitioner.
