The unique paradigm of Stony Brook’s Teacher and Leader Education program enables students to master their disciplines while discovering their pedagogy.  The distributed model enables teacher and leader candidates to study alongside other scholars in their content fields as well as fellow educators.  The program allows students to engage actively in the profession through field experience and reflectively as burgeoning educators as they develop a critical pedagogy. And students, of course, study with intensity under the guidance of experienced faculty to develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions essential for success in the profession. Each graduate of a D-TALE program enters the field of Education with three themes ingrained in their practice: professional excellence and growth, community and diversity, and leadership and service.
