Dr. Monte Tatom, director of Freed-Hardeman University’s Quality Enhancement Program (QEP), has been appointed to serve as the chairperson of the Tennessee State Board of Education Advisory Council on Teacher Education and Certification. Tatom will serve as chairperson from 2011 to 2013; he has been working with the advisory council since 2008.
Tatom has also been invited to serve on a national taskforce convened by the Federal Communications Commission and U.S. Department of Education. The taskforce will focus on acquiring digital textbooks for the K-12 student population.
The QEP is a five-year plan to enhance the integration of student learning and collaborative technology at the university. “The plan promises to make a lasting impact on student learning in the years to come,” school officials say.
