Eugene Williams, dean of the College of Education, has been selected to be trained to serve as a site visitor chair for the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC).
During training for the on-site visitor chair, Williams will participate in a series of whole group and small group sessions in addition to simulated review activities, which will allow him to practice taking the lead in an approval review.
The GaPSC peer approval review process assures programs leading to educator certification meets standards designed to provide highly qualified educators for every public school student in Georgia. A critical part of the peer approval review process involves the work of trained volunteers who review approval applications and evidence related to program performance and conduct approval reviews. GaPSC site visitors are knowledgeable of the standards and can apply these standards to the review of educator preparation providers and programs.
