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 a field-based master's program, and offered in a hybrid (part face to face and online) delivery 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.
