College of Education
Connecting Teaching to Learning for 150 years

January - February - March - 2006


College of Education portrait

So what makes for a great learning experience?

Well, take a class of 25 undergraduate students, add the wisdom and experience of 30 previous graduates (from Dorothy Livingston, who graduated from Oregon Normal School in 1935, to Mary Wilson, who graduated from Western Oregon University in 2004), mix in the 150-year history of one of the finest educational institutions in the country, and you have learning in the making.

In an attempt to better understand the nature of education and teaching, the students in Education 312: Schools, Teachers, and Society, developed this exhibit. They are also responsible for the educational time-line located on the second floor of the Educational Building, and the oral project, located on the third floor of the Library. This work represents the sorts of experiences Western Oregon Unversity students have come to expect at Western-- relevant, meaningful, learning. It also represents the dedicated and enthusiatic students who continue to attend this university and continue to carry on the tradition of the founders who went before them.
