Partnership with ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College
Learn in the West Valley: ASU will come to you
Dysart Unified School District and ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College have partnered to provide students with the ability to complete their clinical experience right here. Thanks to this partnership, students can finish their bachelor’s degree in Special Education and Elementary Education — without ever having to set foot on an ASU campus. All classes and teaching experience take place in Dysart.

Students transferring from another college with their AA degree or those ready to begin their clinical teaching experience can enroll in the program and immediately be immersed in the teaching culture and community. Mentor teachers (seasoned school district teachers) and MLFTC site coordinators (ASU faculty members) will work with students every step of the way to ensure each is given the tools and techniques needed to succeed. Our goal is to provide the support and guidance students need in real time.

For more information about this program, contact Justin Hultman at 480-727-3375.

Each design lab is a progression through an open-ended design process that values local context, diverse perspectives and iterative testing of solutions. Labs can be used to develop and test approaches to all kinds of challenges — from making cafeterias more welcoming and improving a middle school space to redesigning an entire high school. They provide outstanding professional learning opportunities for educators and build capacity for creativity and innovation.
  • Project ELEVATE — Project ELEVATE is a cohort-based executive leadership program developed through partnership of the Center for the Art and Science of Teaching at ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, the Arizona Department of Education and WestEd.
