Tennessee Technological University

Contact information

With an enrollment of more than 10,000 students, Tennessee Tech is located in the Upper Cumberland, and its EPP is housed in the College of Education (COEd) which includes the Departments of Counseling and Psychology, Curriculum and Instruction, and Exercise Science. Programs prepare effective, engaging professionals through a year-long, clinically-rich residency program with a network of over 50 district partnerships across the state. Tennessee Tech's EPP offers 39 initial and 5 advanced licensure programs with a variety of undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, and alternative pathways. Historically, Tennessee Tech has produced the highest number of teacher candidates in Tennessee. Tech's EPP became the first in the state to offer an approved licensure program in Computer Science. We prepare teachers to be computer science literate in hopes of combating the shortage of CS teachers. Our approach is to investigate how computers and logic intersect everyday thinking and learning. The study of computer science is broad and encapsulates theory and concepts around computing. The program prepares educators to understand CS pedagogical approaches as they relate to foundational CS concepts, so their proficiencies do not rely on a specific technology or platform.
