The Conceptual Framework provides a common structure for all initial and advanced preparation education programs. It is focused around seven themes that support the professional educator. These themes are bound together with an emphasis on knowledge, skills, disposition and lifelong learning as essential elements for professional practice.
Our degree programs are aligned with professional, state and program outcomes and emphasize the following themes:
- Advocating for Learning
- Collaborating with Educational Communities
- Engaging in Reflective Practice
- Integrating Technology
- Leading through Innovative Practices
- Practicing Professional Ethics
- Valuing Diversity
The Conceptual Framework is the guiding document for faculty, candidates, advisors and academic staff in the design, implementation and evaluation of programs. Initial and advanced preparation programs emphasize the following themes for professional practice.
The focus and themes of the Conceptual Framework are aligned with the University of Phoenix Learning Goals, as well as with the University’s mission. These goals are incorporated into curricula, instruction and assessments and apply to students in all programs and degree levels.
The Learning Goals include:
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
