ODU SPECIAL ED. PROGRAM IS FINALIST FOR NATIONAL AWARD

Old Dominion University's Special Education Distance Learning Program, cosponsored with the Virginia Department of Education, has been named one of six finalists for the 2005 American Association of State Colleges and Universities' Christa McAuliffe Award.

The final application is due in Washington on June 24.

The McAuliffe Award for Excellence in Teacher Education recognizes outstanding programs in teacher education at AASCU member institutions. AASCU institutions prepare more than 50 percent of all new teachers in the United States each year; ODU produces more teachers than any other Virginia school.

The award will advance the field of teacher education by identifying promising practices for measuring the impact of programs on teacher candidate knowledge and on P-12 pupil learning.
