Program Details

Lock Haven University’s Master of Education in Teaching and Learning aims to prepare educators with the skills necessary to rise to leadership positions in their schools. The Master of Education in Teaching and Learning, aligned with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, is designed to enable individuals who work in education and related settings, develop competencies that are characteristic of those who assume leadership roles in bringing about improvement.
Curriculum and instruction are central to educational improvement and focus on the what, how, and why of teaching and learning. In today's education reform climate, it is necessary for knowledgeable leaders to understand the reform process from multiple perspectives. Graduates will be prepared to engage in reflective practice that can affect policy and procedure. Inherent in this process is the concept of reflective decision-making. The program prepares educators to continuously increase their effectiveness as teacher-leaders. Those in higher education settings interested in instructional improvement may also benefit from this program. Students will develop the skills to become educational change agents by studying and learning from a structured curriculum.

The program is designed to meet the needs of those teaching in public and private settings as well as early education or intermediate unit programs. The program is designed to be completed in two years by taking two courses per semester, including summers. The program may be completed earlier by taking additional courses beyond the two per semester. Participants not planning to complete this degree within seven years may be required to repeat coursework. This program can serve as a foundation for those seeking National Board Certification.

The Master of Education in Teaching and Learning can be completed entirely online. Streaming audio, streaming video, threaded discussion, journaling, real-time chat discussions, document sharing, and other instructional methods make it possible to create active and engaged learning communities. The discussions are designed to be tremendously engaging, and the opportunities for learners to explore areas of interest and bring findings back to classmates for discussion, input and feedback are highly valuable to the process.
