The K-12 Online Teaching Endorsement program and courses will examine the current best practices for personalization for each individual student in our K-12 classrooms. Personalization is closely related to two additionally important terms; individualization and differentiation. All three terms require a shift in focus from a teacher centered approach to an authentic, student-centered approach. A true student centered focus requires that we tailor our lessons to the abilities, interests, preferences, future life dreams, self-esteem, socio-emotional attributes, and other needs of the individual student.
This program will allow teachers to earn an additional certification or endorsement. Students can take the K-12 Online Teaching Endorsement as a stand-alone option, add it to our M.Ed. in Teaching – Online Learning Concentration, or take courses for professional development purposes leading to recertification.
This endorsement does not lead to any certification and is not eligible for student federal financial aid.
