Course Outcomes


Educator Preparation Program Outcomes

This course is part of your preparation for licensure in a major or minor that is part of the BYU Educator Preparation Program (EPP). This course will help you fulfill the EPP Outcomes required for accreditation. Advisors in Education Student Services (350 MCKB / 801-422-3426) can answer questions you have about the licensure requirements (http://education.byu.edu/ess/licensing.html) for your teaching major or minor.

As students progress through the Technology and Engineering teacher education program, they should gain knowledge, dispositions and skills that will enable them to become effective teachers. The standards that encompass the knowledge, dispositions and skills that teachers should have are known as the UETS standards and can be found on the TEE Outcomes webpage. The following UETS standards will be addressed in this class (TEE 291R).

Course Outcomes - Level 1

  • UETS Standard 1 - Learner and Development: The teacher understands cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional and physical areas of student development.
  • UETS Standard 3 - Learning Environments: The teacher works with learners to create environments that support individual and collaborative learning, encouraging positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.
  • UETS Standard 4 - Content Knowledge: The teacher understands the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structure of the discipline.
  • UETS Standard 5 - Assessment: The teacher uses multiple methods of assessment to engage learners in their own growth, monitor learner progress, guide planning and instruction, and determine whether the outcomes described in the content standards have been met.
  • UETS Standard 6- Instructional Planning: The teacher plans instruction to support students in meeting rigorous learning goals by drawing upon knowledge of content area, Core Curriculum standards, instructional best practices, and the community context.
  • UETS Standard 7- Instructional Strategies: The teacher uses various instructional strategies to ensure that all learners develop a deep understanding of content areas and their connections, and build skills to apply and extend knowledge in meaningful ways.

Course Outcomes - Level 2

  1. Students will understand what technology and engineering education is, and why it is important, and how it fits within the context of the educational system, specifically, CTE (Career and Technology Education).
  2. Students will participate in various professional development activities (i.e., guest lectures, service projects, national and regional/state conferences) to gain insight and experience in educational settings related to technology and engineering education.
  3. Students will participate as TEECA (technology and engineering education collegiate association) members. This experience will provide the students with collaborative service, competition, and professional development opportunities.
