It is a mission of our program to provide undergraduate students with the highest level of quality teaching. In order to accomplish this mission, students need to not only acquire knowledge but also have the opportunities to apply their knowledge to real world settings. It is very clear that the State of Texas Learning Outcomes and Standards require this as the outcomes specify that students will gain knowledge and apply their knowledge in the specific standard area. It is my mission as an instructor of undergraduate students to provide them with field experiences, active learning through in-class activities, scenario type readings with follow-up questions, small group projects which elicit brain-storming and problem solving, and ongoing student assessment measures that reflect authentic testing. These are excellent methods to enhance and boost student engagement.
