Why USD?

USD’s online teacher education graduate program is unique because it is situated in a traditional university. The online program goals were constructed to align with the department of Learning and Teaching’s commitment to access and equity, urban education, research-guided practice, and professional development. These boundary crossings between campus-based and online teaching provides a synergy that helps faculty use best practices in teacher education to become better face-to-face instructors and better online teachers.
