Substantial Mod: Leadership in Teaching Online Program Description
Notre Dame of Maryland University is proposing to offer the existing Master of Arts (M.A.) in Leadership in Teaching (MAT) as an online program.  The 36-hour curriculum provides advanced study for professionals who wish to become master teachers—leaders in the art and craft of teaching—with the commitment and skills to provide for the success of their students and the leadership development of their peers.  Courses in pedagogy introduce students to state-of-the-art practices that enable teachers to empower their students to be self-motivated, serious learners.  Teachers improve their ability to become critical consumers of education research that explores teaching and learning. They become familiar with computer tools available for planning and instruction, use instruments for assessment and evaluation, and study approaches to curriculum design and course planning.  Currently the degree program, including the School Administration and Supervision Certification (but not the concentrations), is offered at off campus locations at the Northeast Maryland Higher Education Center (Aberdeen), Southern Maryland Higher Education Center, and Anne Arundel Community College.
