MEd Student Learning Outcomes

The Master of Education program is designed for practicing teachers who want to deepen their expertise with a specialization, specifically in curriculum and instruction. Students develop nuanced understandings of best practices that enable them to assume leadership roles in schools and other educational organizations. Depending on the area of focus, students will understand the dynamic nature of school reform and its impact on teaching and learning; how different teaching modalities encourage learning; how advances in cognitive science inform pedagogy; the ways in which race, class, gender, and sexual orientation dynamics inform and influence teaching; as well as how the history of education in America influences present practice.
