Conceptual Framework




Delta State University

College of Education

Conceptual Framework


Vision: The Delta State University College of Education promotes a vibrant

educational community committed to preparing capable and confident candidates who can positively affect learning outcomes of students in the P-12 school setting. Appropriately illustrated by the Delta triangle, the model reflects

candidate development through the triad of preparation, performance and professionalism, supported by the greater Delta educational community (faculty, educational partners, and alumni).

Guiding Principles:

1. Education is a lifelong endeavor, requiring an ever-expanding

content knowledge base, a repertoire of skills, and a broad experience

base. (GP1)

2. Education is interactive and reflective, a process that is


through assessment and reflection of a collaborative nature. (GP2)

3. Education is culturally contextualized, requiring both an


and appreciation of the diversity of all individuals within the learning

community. (GP3)

4. Education is dynamic, with change being driven by assessment data

and the needs of all segments of the educational community. (GP4)

5. Education is enhanced by technology, infused throughout programs and services. (GP5)
