Applied Leadership for Teaching and Learning
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's Master's Degree in Applied Leadership for Teaching and Learning recognizes the valuable contributions of experienced educators and their ability to engage in professional development within a community of learners. With this understanding as its foundation, the program provides experienced educators with the opportunity to advance their knowledge and skills and be recognized as leaders within their profession. This 30-credit program, which can be completed within two calendar years, includes a 21-credit core requirement as well as a nine-credit area of emphasis. As part of the core requirement, degree candidates will be required to conduct a classroom-based inquiry project. The core curriculum is based on the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). The Applied Leadership degree is unique in many respects. It is a truly advanced degree program that does not include teacher certification. It recognizes the expertise of experienced educators working within a community of professional learners. Most importantly, this program will prepare educators to conduct classroom-based research and to use their knowledge of research to make data-based decisions in order to improve student learning.
