Abstract

CalStateTEACH is a California State University (CSU) Systemwide Teacher Preparation program that provides an alternative pathway to earning a multiple subject (elementary) teaching credential. The program is totally field based, and teacher candidates share ideas through web-based “class discussions,” without attending traditional college classes. Instead, the curriculum is delivered using a self-study format—online—and teacher candidates receive professional feedback through on-site coaching. It is this electronic delivery of instruction and supervision that we will explore and how this can lead a green solution to positively effect the environment.
