Statement of the Education Division
The mission of the Education Division of Brewton-Parker College, which echoes the mission of the college, is to produce effective and reflective educators through programs that will allow them to acquire a strong foundation of research-based knowledge with a Christian worldview; strengthen philosophical attitudes and Christian values; and demonstrate strong pedagogical practices. These are educators whose knowledge of, disposition towards, and performance related to curriculum, pedagogy and the learner are guided by the Christian faith. A reflective teacher is one who critically examines the practices of teaching and is able to make informed decisions as well as to solve problems. The mission is achieved by guiding the teacher candidates down Reflective Pathways from Theory to Practice, which becomes a unifying theme for the division. This reflective theme supports a program of liberal arts core classes including Christianity and education courses, content courses, field experiences, and volunteer services.
