MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College’s Division of Education chair, Dr. David W. Moffett, was recently elected to serve as one of two at-large board members of the Georgia Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (GACTE).
GACTE is comprised of Georgia’s 35 Board of Regents public institutions of higher education and many of the independent institutions, including Brewton-Parker College (BPC). GACTE is the state chapter affiliate of the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE).
According to Dr. T. Ronald Melton, BPC provost, Dr. Moffett’s selection will have a positive impact on the college and the students it serves.
“Dr. Moffett’s selection to the Board of the Georgia Association of Teacher Education is a great honor. It also means that he will have an opportunity to be a powerful voice representing the interests of teacher education across the state,” said Dr. Melton. “Dr. Moffett has vast experience in teacher education and he is particularly qualified to serve in this capacity.”
Dr. Moffett is excited to serve the state and the college through this position.
“Being a board member of GACTE will be professionally rewarding since it will provide opportunities to engage in meaningful conversations at the state and national levels regarding educational research, professional development, teacher preparation, multicultural diversity and accreditation issues,” said Dr. Moffett.
Dr. Moffett and four other Division of Education members recently presented a joint paper at the GACTE conference in Savannah. The paper, “Applying Asynchronous Solutions to the Multi-Tasking Realities of a Teacher Education Faculty Unit: Case Study,” was selected by a blind review from the organization.
Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
