Academic Plan

Academic Plan

In each course, you’ll learn the latest research in pedagogy and seek ways to apply it directly to your own classroom. 

You'll start the program in fall, spring or summer, and take one course at a time (30 graduate credits total) over five consecutive terms. Because the program incorporates teachers' summer opportunities for learning, you can complete the program in less than two years.

Each week, in each course, you’ll interact with your instructors and other students on your learning team through e-mail and the web-based D2L learning platform. Learning is largely “asynchronous,” meaning you can work when it makes the most sense for your schedule.
