About Us

1993 the California State University, Los Angeles' Charter College of
Education (CCOE) has operated as the first Charter College of Education
in the nation. Because the campus is located in the heart of metropolitan
Los Angeles, the Charter College of Education programs reflect concern
with the problems and challenges of urban education with particular emphasis
on linguistic and cultural diversity. The new governance structure of
the Charter College of Education encourages innovation in curriculum and
research; school-based projects; technology integration; and faculty collaboration
with CCOE colleagues, colleagues and programs in other units at CSLA,
P-12 schools; and with other community partners. The Charter College of
Education has been continuously accredited by NCATE since 1957 and recently
became the first in California to have been granted full accreditation
by the California Committee on Accreditation.

NASP, CORE, AERBVI, and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing
also accredit the CCOE. The Charter College of Education has outstanding
technology resources, including 7 computer labs, 8 smart classrooms, office
workstations for all faculty, and loaner laptop computers and projectors.
The CCOE is serviced by 3 full-time technology resource specialists, including
one whose job it is to assist faculty in using technology for their personal
productivity and in their instruction.

Instructional Technology Program at Cal State Los Angeles is housed in
Division of Educational Foundations and Interdivisional Studies. It offers
service courses for other programs in the Charter College, including EDIT
430, Introduction to Computers and their Uses in the Classroom, which
is required of all teachers completing their California clear teaching
credentials. The IT Program offers two MA degrees-one in Computer Education
and Technology Leadership and another in New Media Design and Production.

of the graduates of these MA programs are technology leaders in schools
and districts in CSLA's service area. Faculty in the IT program are involved
in many school-based projects, including Linking Teachers and Technology
program which is training teachers from 20 school districts in the San
Gabriel Valley (adjacent to the CSULA campus) to incorporate technology
into their classrooms.

CATALISE team members have outstanding experiences related to the use
of technology in K-12 schools and in teacher education. Furthermore, they
are experienced in accreditation, standards, and school reform. The team
consists of 3 faculty members from the InstructionalTechnology program
and 1 faculty member from the Division of Curriculum and Instruction.
