Welcome to the Teacher Education Program at Western Oregon University! As you begin your Gen Ed and Pre-Education courses this year, keep in mind that they are all strategically designed to prepare you to understand the specific course content and teaching methods you will need to be an exceptional teacher.
We recommend that, sometime during Winter or Spring term, you attend a one-hour general Teacher Licensure Exam Preparation workshop (we offer these at a variety of times/days throughout the term). This workshop will help you to understand the content you will need to be studying and reviewing throughout your first three years at WOU and will help you to be confidently prepared when it's time to take your exams your Junior year.
For more details about which exams you will be taking, how to access preparation materials, and how to register for your exams, use the Quick Reference Guide.
