(November 8, 2011) – The California State University’s CalStateTEACH Multiple Subject Credential Program recently received a unanimous recommendation for Full Program Accreditation by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). The CTC’s Committee on Accreditation recommended the accreditation after a thorough review of the CalStateTEACH program by the Bureau of Institutional Reviewers. Established in 1999, CalStateTEACH is a non-traditional program that offers both a student teaching and an intern program for qualified candidates interested in earning their credential without attending traditional college classes. Instead, the curriculum is delivered online. Participants use online materials, E-texts, videos and electronic tablets. They share ideas through web-based “class discussions,” and get professional feedback through on-site coaching. CalStateTEACH participants enjoy personal guidance from mentor teachers at their school site as well as CSU faculty. They communicate and share ideas with other participants via the course website. Approximately 6,800 participants have completed the CalStateTEACH program with candidates participating from each of California’s 58 counties.
