College of Education Reorganization:
Effective July 1, 2011, the UNLV College of Education has been reorganized from six departments into three departments. The Department of Curriculum & Instruction, including majority of its faculty and programs, have been reorganized into the Department of Teaching & Learning.
The Curriculum & Instruction Department holds as its central mission the preparation and development of educators at all levels. The department ensures that its professional education programs are based on essential knowledge, established and current research findings, and sound professional practice.
We are interested in hearing your comments and suggestions. Please take a moment to share your thoughts.
It is my pleasure to announce that Dr. Shaoan Zhang has been awarded a competitive grant award in the amount of $45K from the Nevada System of Higher Education. The competition was from the Nevada College Access Challenge program. Dr. Zhang is a co-PI with Dr. Hui Zhao, College of Engineering. Their project is entitled: From Macro to Micro/Nano: Career Planning for High School Students Towards a Brighter Future in Biomedical Engineering, Renewable Energy, and Microelectronics. Congratulations to Drs. Zhang and Zhao for their collaborative work.

The deadline to apply for Fall 2011 Field Experience has been extended to April 30. For detailed instructions on how to apply for Fall 2011 Field Experience, visit the Office of Field Experience Applications website for more information.
Beginning in the Fall of 2011, Masters students must be enrolled in at least 3 credits during the term in which they plan to graduate. In the past, an exception to this Graduate College policy has been granted for students enrolled in the C&I 1-credit culminating experience (CIG 697).
Students planning to graduate in the fall should save one last course to take with their culminating experience. Those who have no classes remaining, however, should contact your advisor and an arrangement can be made to exempt you from this requirement.
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is very pleased to announce that Dr. Wang has been selected as the recipient for the Distinguished Research Award by the College of Education (COE) Scholarship and Honors Committee.
Dr. Wang conducts research in the areas of teacher education reform, teacher learning, teacher mentoring and international comparative studies.
