As educators, we value being lifelong learners, constantly adjusting our teaching techniques to adhere to the latest best practices. If you work within an education related organization, you can be a catalyst of change for your colleagues, supporting them in refining their instructional and administrative techniques. Help build your school’s community, assess and coach effective classroom skills, and use a systems approach to curriculum and instruction.
The Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring is for education professionals seeking to deepen their ability to work with others in educational settings. The certificate allows the practitioner to explore their original teaching area or other area of interest more specifically and strengthen their ability to work with others in the field. It is designed for practitioners who want to remain in the field but not add another area of licensure.
The Educational Leadership-Coaching and Mentoring Certificate is designed for professionals who currently work in or with education related organizations. This certificate will prepare students to play a leadership role in an educational setting and to support colleagues in refining their instructional and administrative techniques. Throughout this coursework students will learn skills to help build community, assess and coach effective classroom skills, and use a systems approach to curriculum and instruction.
Students taking coursework in this concentration /certificate area can obtain a master’s degree in education with limited additional coursework. The additional coursework emphasizes working within the individual classroom and the entire school community to build leadership capacity and to understand, and ethically apply, scientifically based educational research.
