The theme of the conference was "Making a Difference in Teacher Education," and the topic focused on Union's innovative instructional design core of courses for preparing elementary teachers. Four dynamic strands (diversity, technology,cognitive learning theory, and assessment) have been integrated into a core of courses which include content-specific methods areas. Union's elementary education majors complete these courses, with clinical field experience attached, in their junior and senior years before student teaching.
