M.Ed in Teaching and Learning
The 36-semester-credit program allows teachers to identify, investigate, and transform their beliefs and practices about their teaching and learning. Learners will connect their inquiry to their discipline and apply their learning to their classroom. The learning community will explore aspects of teacher identity and examine best practices and theory as part of individual and community-wide learning experiences. During the course of the M.Ed. program, learning community members work collaboratively and cooperatively to develop and assess their work with performance assessments and professional portfolios.
In demonstrating growth on the M.Ed. Program Standards, learning community members will be challenged to develop themselves and their practice through action research and inquiry in areas aligned with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and the Wisconsin Teacher Standards. Ongoing assessment processes for evaluating monthly plans for learning promote reflection, celebrate learning and structure new learning opportunities. At the conclusion of the learning community experience, learning community members will provide a summary that will detail the applications of their professional development. This reflection will involve growth demonstrated with both action research and inquiry.
