Central Teacher Education Network (formerly CTEC)

CCSU’s teacher preparation programs subscribe to the National Network for Educational Renewal’s (NNER) mission which is as follows:

  • provide access to knowledge for all children (equity and excellence);
  • educate students for thoughtful participation in a social and political democracy (enculturation);
  • base teaching on knowledge of the subjects taught, established principles of learning, and sensitivity to the unique potential of learners (nurturing pedagogy); and
  • take responsibility for improving the conditions for learning in P-12 schools,  institutions of higher education and communities (stewardship).
