UCLA Teacher Education Program Core Principles

UCLA’s Teacher Education Program (TEP) was founded in 1992 and is guided by eight core principles:

  • Embody a social justice agenda
  • Foster sustained engagement in teaching and learning
  • Attend to the moral, cultural, and political dimensions of teaching
  • Blend theory and practice
  • Collaborate across institutions and communities
  • Participate in collaborative inquiry within communities of practice
  • Focus simultaneously on professional education, school reform
    and reinventing the university’s role in K-14 schooling
  • Mirror the diverse, caring, anti-racist, socially-responsible learning
    communities
