Vision and Mission

The mission of the School of Education is to provide effective professional preparation and development programs that are career-oriented, integrate technology, support diversity, and connect with the real world through learner active instructional strategies. In addition to professional education, our purposes include the generation of field relevant research that extends the knowledge base and the provision of services to the community to inform practice.

NYIT School of Education Conceptual Framework

Diversity

Our commitment to diversity is tangible in all we do. Our programs seek to benefit all learners and are offered in several delivery modes at multiple sites. This variety offers modality options and expands access by reducing geographic and time barriers. By tapping the vast array of content material, formats, and instructional strategies candidates learn to create and customize instructional experiences to meet the specific needs of students and clients.

Technology

Technology is not just part of our name, it is substantively woven through our beliefs and actions. We see technology as the medium of communication and the foremost tool for teaching and learning: It entices, encourages, enables and empowers learners (Silverman, 1990). Technology skills needed by professionals in the field are infused in every program design, from adolescence education and instructional technology to childhood education and school counseling.

Field Relations

Our faculty are experienced P-12 teachers, supervisors, superintendents, trainers, and researchers, as well as doctorally qualified academics. They continue to work closely with schools, agencies, and businesses. In addition, the education faculty work with state and local technology policy-makers and the developers of emerging technologies and educational applications.
