Teacher Candidate Survey
On behalf of the Department of Teacher Education, we would like to thank all of you who participated in this year's inaugural Teacher Candidate Survey. Over 40% of you responded to the December and May surveys, providing us with a significant amount of feedback.
"So what?" you may ask. In answer, we want you to know that we have already begun and will continue to look at what you told us to help improve our practices. We are delighted that so many of you found the program to be professionally and personally rewarding. We are proud that many of you found the work to be practical and useful as you prepared for a career in teaching. But you also reminded us that we have some things to work on to make Brock's teacher education program the best it can be in order to prepare the best Teacher Candidates possible. This includes easing the number of assignments in the program and the amount of group work, among other suggestions. The Department has already met to discuss your feedback and is actively taking steps to improve the program, based on your feedback.
Our very best wishes to you as you prepare to begin your teaching career. We look forward to seeing you at convocation on June 9th, and hope to hear of success stories arising from any interview opportunities underway. Surgite!
