Jan. 25, 2016
California State University’s CalStateTEACH program, which offers prospective teachers the opportunity to study and earn credential credits online, has won the coveted national Apple Distinguished Program Award for the third consecutive time.
This year, the CSU is the only university to be named among the six school recipients.
In announcing the 2015-17 award, John Couch, vice president of education for Apple, said “the administration and faculty at California State University have shown that they demonstrate the five best practices of an Apple Distinguished Program – visionary leadership, innovative learning and teaching, ongoing professional learning, compelling evidence of success and a flexible learning environment.” He noted that more than half of all K-12 teachers in California are CSU graduates.
