    • School of Education Philosophy

      The philosophy of the School of Education at The Citadel is based on five fundamental propositions. These propositions serve to orient the mission and conceptual base of the School, guide the actions and value system of the faculty, shape the curricula of the various programs, and provide to its faculty their sense of purpose and meaning for teaching, scholarship, and professional service. These five propositions are:

      (1) The faculty is committed to promoting education for all individuals to the fullest extent possible. With the implementation of appropriate teaching and assessment strategies, a fundamental guiding belief is that all students, though having unique learning styles and experiences, are capable of learning.

      (2) It is the educator’s responsibility, with the aid of appropriate resources and support, to establish a mutually respectful environment where effective learning occurs for all students.

      (3)Education is a systematic effort to facilitate the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary for the student to function in a diverse society.

      (4) The faculty is committed to upholding the highest professional standards in all situations in which they model these standards to students through their teaching, research, and service endeavors.

      (5) The faculty is committed to an open interchange of ideas wherein the perspectives of all are valued.

    • School of Education Mission

      The mission of the School of Education at The Citadel is to support the development and preparation of individuals who are knowledgeable about the learning process and learners and who are effective, ethical, and reflective educators prepared to assume leadership roles in the profession and community. Further, with a focus toward learner-centered education, they are effective in educating a diverse learner population to high academic standards. The mission is based on the School’s philosophy and conceptual model.

    • School of Education Conceptual Framework

    • Definition of Learner-Centered Education

      Learner-centered education is defined by McCombs and Whisler (1997, p.9) as "the perspective that couples a focus on individual learners (their heredity, experiences, perspectives, backgrounds, talents, interest, capacities, and needs) with a focus on learning (the best available knowledge about learning and how it occurs and about teaching practices that are most effective in promoting the highest levels of motivation, learning, and achievement for all learners)." This dual focus, then, informs and drives educational decision-making. Leadership focused toward learner-centered education in this perspective embodies the learner and learning in the programs, policies, and teaching that support effective learning for all students.
