Program Description
The strength of the program is its unique collaboration between the School of Education (pedagogy–”how to teach”) and the Department of Industrial Studies (technology–”what to teach”). Both programs combine a personal touch with “hands-on” learning. The variety of laboratory courses enhance the student learning in technology education. Specifically, course work in the following areas prepare the future technology education teacher: Graphic Communication, Material Processing, Computer Aided Drafting and Design, Power Systems and Controls, Construction Materials and Processes, and Educational Theory and Practice (Pedagogy). Faculty teaching in the technology education major are highly qualified. Due to the unique combination, faculty are drawn from both the School of Education and the Department of Industrial Studies. All faculty are recognized as specialists in their respective fields of study. Demand for technology education teachers is great. Over the last several years, Wisconsin has had at least 50 vacancies for certified technology education teachers. Projections suggest that this demand will continue as the current cohort of technology education teachers reach retirement age.
