UNI's College of Education (COE) is known for having some of the most innovative teacher education programs in the country. Year after year, our graduates are hired as teachers, principals and superintendents across the state, nation and around the world.
Students gain real world experiences through hands-on learning both in- and out- of the classroom. These experiences give them the skills and confidence they need to step right into their careers and excel.
COE faculty, staff, students and graduates are committed to educating, serving and leading our communities. Proof of this commitment can be found in COE's impact to the state of Iowa.
The "Journal of STEM Arts, Crafts and Constructions" is a new online, open-access, peer-revised scholarly journal that seeks to engage professionals in a conversation about the benefits of arts integration; the ways that the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) can be integrated with the arts to produce effective teaching (STEAM education); and how the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) can be effectively implemented with integrated arts, crafts or constructions. The journal publishes editorials, practical articles and research articles. The journal originated in a faculty study group on arts integration in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
