VSU wins Best Practices awards

Valdosta- A South Georgia college is getting national recognition for its teaching practices.

Valdosta State University's College of Education received two "Best Practices" awards from the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.

The first award is for the college's innovative use of technology, the other is for collaboration with community colleges. V.S.U. has partnered with Waycross College, South Georgia College, and ABAC to develop degree programs in Special Education and Early Childhood Education.

"This award says to me that Valdosta State University's College of Education is among the leaders in the nation in preparing teachers for our public school students," said Philip Gunter, Dean of the College of Education.

V.S.U. President Ronald Zaccari accepted the awards at a banquet in Washington, D.C. last week.
