Our M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership program

In our M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership program, you will learn how to apply the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework to proactively design capacity-building learning experiences. Within UDL, learner variability, whether visible or invisible, is seen as an asset. Based in cognitive neuroscience, UDL focuses on designing with variability in mind and removing barriers to learning by frontloading flexible options for engaging learners, teaching important concepts, and building goal-directed learners. In your coursework, you will experience the UDL framework firsthand as program faculty model the principles and actively engage you in applying UDL in your own practice.

Coursework includes:

LUE 601 Social Foundations of Education
LUE 605 Contemporary Issues in Urban Education
LUE 610 Teacher Leadership Theory and Practice
LUE 615 Curriculum Theory
LUE 620 Effective Learning Environments
LUE 625 Classroom-Based Assessment
LUE 630 Instructional Coaching
LUE 635 Leading Professional Learning
LUE 640 Participatory Action Research and Appreciative Inquiry Capstone
