Conceptual Framework

The Conceptual Framework reflects the PNC Education Unit’s belief that effective educators not only master professional, pedagogical content and content knowledge, but are also committed to lifelong learning and ethical practice that lead to educational reform. The unit believes that PNC teacher preparation programs should support candidates’ professional leadership and ethic development and continual growth in not only necessary knowledge and skills but also necessary dispositions and professional behaviors for becoming effective educators. The unit believes effective educators should also be committed to their students’ continual growth and making positive changes in the educational environment where they work.  Please click the link below to view the full Conceptual Framework Handbook.
