Abstract/ Summary

The College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) accomplishments this year attest to the excellence of our faculty, programs and students. The quality of our teacher preparation programs is evident in the extraordinary efforts of our student teachers who, in spite of coronavirus, developed creative ways to meet the needs of the students and schools with whom they work. (Pendharkar, 2020 - Appendix A) We have also created online Early College courses for high school students who may be interested in education majors. Our online graduate programs were rated this year as one of the best in the country according to U.S. News and World Report (University of Maine, 2020a - Appendix A)

In exciting new research, faculty are exploring how spatial display technologies (virtual or augmented reality) are creating opportunities for teaching and learning in STEM areas, by showing how students can investigate math and science concepts through body-based explorations, and how visually impaired students can access visualizations through other modalities. One COEHD professor was invited to share her nationally lauded research on hazing at events sponsored by both the Louisiana and California Boards of Regents for Higher Education. Another COEHD professor was awarded the title UMS Trustee Professor in recognition of his outstanding research and contributions to academic excellence. (University of Maine, 2020b - Appendix A)
