To help answer the call for high quality teacher preparation voiced by the U.S. Department of Education and echoed by school districts around the country, the University of Delaware has recently expanded the online Master of Education in Teacher Leadership program. Now enrolling for spring 2016, UD’s M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership program consists of 30 total credits and can be completed in 24 months. The curriculum was developed by the university’s faculty of experienced researchers and educators, including Elizabeth Farley-Ripple, associate director of the School of Education and recipient of a $5 million grant by the Institute of Education for her work in establishing the Center for Research Use in Education. The program is offered through a flexible online platform that enables current teachers to enroll at a top research university to build leadership skills while maintaining their busy work schedules.
Graduates of the program gain a firm foundation in educational reform, K-12 policy, the implications and application of new teaching standards, conceptual frameworks and practical tools for leading change through collegial collaboration and professional development. Upon completion, they will have the ability to work as department chairs, curriculum coaches, demonstration teachers, professional development specialists, and hold other similar positions.
