|▲ College of Education’s special Program,“Plural Course", have started.|
College of Education recently held a ceremony for 72 middle school and high school teachers, who have become the first graduates of a special training course. This course, the only one of its kind, was launched by Dongguk University this year. In the whole metropolitan area, there are no other similar training courses. Hence, many teachers living in Gyenggi-do and In-cheon came to Dongguk to take this course and get a special certificate.
This course allows teachers to earn a certificate to teach an additional subject. The program was held over six months, March to August. 29 teachers earned a certificate for teaching Korean Language and Literature, and 43teachers got a certificate for teaching math. Prior to this, there haven’t been any programs which gave teachers the opportunity to earn additional subject certifications. Until now, there have only been programs for getting certificates in minor courses. However, Dongguk implemented this special program and teachers have responded enthusiastically. In addition, because university graduate from any school were accepted to the program it brought together teachers from diverse backgrounds to Dongguk to participate in the course.
To show their appreciation, the participating teachers gathered money and contributed it to the Dongguk University development fund. In our university, there are many offices working to help promote Dongguk. In this case, the personnel at the College of Education have helped to make Dongguk to become only place to offer this kind of program. We have to remember that the College of Education and many other colleges and offices are working hard for Dongguk.
