Preparing Educators at All Levels to “Train Up” the Next Generation

Every child deserves a quality education. Every adult who wants to pursue undergraduate and/or graduate degree programs should be empowered to do so. Educators lead the way for all of them.

At Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City, we believe not only in the value of education, but also in the importance of well-trained, Christ-centered educators at every level of academics in both public and private sectors of our society. Instructors and administrators at pre-school, elementary, secondary, undergraduate, and graduate schools need to understand not only pedagogy, but also practical strategies for navigating the evolving educational environment, including:

  • Changing academic standards
  • Evaluation systems
  • New technology in the classroom and beyond
  • Mental and emotional challenges for students
  • Safety
  • Growing leadership expectations
  • Integrating faith and work
  • Compensation
  • Career development

At MACU, each member of the faculty in our School of Teacher Education—accredited through Oklahoma’s Office of Educational Quality and Accountability using Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) standards—is a devoted Christian and long-time educator who understands first hand both the challenges and rewards of training up each generation of children, adolescents, and young adults. Instructors are dedicated to imparting their knowledge, wisdom, and faith-based perspective to MACU education students at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in education, training, and library occupations is projected to grow 10 percent from 2020 to 2030, adding about 920,500 new jobs.
