The Master of Education in Teaching and Learning program is designed for licensed, practicing teachers and educators, who want to earn a master’s degree while supported and instructed by a team of experienced facilitators in a learning community. The 30-credit program allows teachers to identify, investigate, and transform their teaching and learning. Learners connect inquiry to their discipline and apply their learning directly to their classroom.
M.Ed. learners explore aspects of teacher identity and examine best practices and theory as part of individual, community, and program-wide learning experiences.
The program version is offered in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
By the end of the Master of Education in Teaching and Learning program graduates are expected to be
- self-aware individuals, understanding the influence of unique talents, personalities, perspectives, biases, and experiences;
- reflective practitioners, integrating metacognition and coaching thinking into practice;
- scholarly educators, understanding and negotiating the complexities of teaching and learning;
- designers, approaching design with intention;
- collaborators, utilizing various skills that foster positive interdependent relationships;
- inquirers, leading with curiosity, being open to wonder and ambiguity; and
- leaders, validating and embracing the role as teacher leaders.
