Substantial Mod: K-8 STEM Education Lead - Teacher & Retitle: STEM Instructional Leader PreK - 6 Program Description
Johns Hopkins University (JHU) has submitted a proposal to substantially modify existing Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in K-8 STEM Lead-Teacher by updating the curriculum and adding online instruction version of the program.  Additionally, JHU is requesting to change the title of the certificate to STEM Instructional Leader (PreK – 6).  The proposed curriculum has been modified to align with MSDE’s approved Instructional Leader-STEM (PREK-6) licensure endorsement.  The 18-credit hour certificate program has been updated to emphasize a problem-based, project-based approach which allows for exploration, inquiry, problem solving and critical thinking.  This approach enhances the teacher’s understanding of STEM content, pedagogical content knowledge and use of technology.
