Teacher Education + Service-Learning + On-Line = Success
The CGCC Teacher Education Program has service learning as a core component of the curriculum of every course; therefore, each semester, 375-425 students are individually placed in local classrooms for 20-30 hours of service. In 2009, the service learning team, in partnership with TSS and Teacher Education faculty, implemented a web-based system for placing and monitoring students’ service in the schools. Moving the Teacher Education service learning placement process on-line has benefited students who are now placed in school classrooms more expediently. The program and process has earned respect and praise from the local school districts who have increased confidence in the CGCC systems for fingerprint management, placement, and monitoring of our students in their schools.
