When you were admitted to the MCE Program, you were asked to review the Program Dispositions expectations and process and to sign the form indicating that you had done so. It is the responsibility of the College of Education, Health, and Society to successfully prepare candidates to become effective teachers. All of our initial licensure programs require candidates to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions outlined in the conceptual framework of the College of Education as they align with the expected behaviors of beginning teachers. Each candidate will be evaluated on these dispositions by faculty and school personnel and provided with feedback to assist with their progress. The Disposition Review evaluation is a required criteria of each Benchmark phase of your program.
Dispositions are defined as how values, commitments, and professional ethics manifest themselves in professional practice. Dispositions are guided by beliefs and attitudes related to values such as caring, fairness, honesty, responsibility, and social justice (NCATE, 2001) and are operationally defined as tendencies or beliefs that are conveyed or made public through observable behaviors. The following dispositions are expected of teacher education candidates in the university classroom and in the schools:
The candidate demonstrates a commitment to the profession and adheres to the legal and ethical standards set forth by it.
The candidate develops, maintains, and models appropriate relationships within the workplace, community, and larger diverse society.
The candidate demonstrates a commitment to continuous development within the profession.
