Teaching and Leadership
This program is designed for certified, employed education personnel who desire to enhance their competencies as practitioners in school settings.
The teaching and leadership program is an off campus master's program and offered in an off campus model. It is designed to provide the credit-hours and student contact time of a conventional campus-based master's degree program in education under conditions that are convenient to practicing educators. The site-based program is a sequence of courses that examines the research on effective schools, instruction and staff development while building competence in the use of applied research methodologies. The program is offered at a limited number of sites approved by the Illinois Board of Higher Education and the Wisconsin Board of Higher Education.
