The Teacher Education department at DSU is nationally accredited. In order to demonstrate accreditation requirements, the department must provide evidence that all candidates meet basic competencies in their fields of study. This is accomplished in part through various key assignments, portfolio review, and satisfactory completion of field experiences--all of which are documented in the LiveText online system. Teacher Education students will purchase a LiveText subscription with their first education class and use it through program completion.

LiveText tip sheets are hyperlinked below. Should you need additional assistance, please either contact LiveText support (1-866-LIVETEXT; or Dr. Lisa Daniels (701-483-2048;
