STEM and Mathematics Instructional Leadership PreK-6 Virtual Webinar

On Wednesday, December 9, join us online at 4:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m EST for virtual webinar.

Featured programs: 

Graduate Certificate in STEM Instructional Leader PreK-6

Students in Pre-K to sixth-grade levels are learning critical knowledge and skills necessary for STEM-related college majors and careers. The STEM Instructional Leader (Pre-K–6) certificate program is an online, 18-hour certificate for current teachers to develop motivational learning experiences and to lead change as instructional leaders, coaches, and mentors.

Candidates for the STEM Instructional Leader certificate learn to incorporate research-based practices that promote equity, access, and excellence in pre-K–6 STEM students, including underrepresented individuals, those with learning differences, and English learners.

Candidates participate in active learning experiences that bolster their own content knowledge in the fundamental areas of physical science, life science, Earth and space science, and mathematics. Coursework includes culturally relevant pedagogy in asset-based instruction; problem- and project-based learning; technology-enhanced instruction; STEM explorations, inquiry-oriented strategies, problem solving, and critical thinking; engineering design; and interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches.

Candidates can combine this certificate with other areas (see related programs) as they pursue a master’s degree. Under the MS in Education with a concentration in Educational Studies, students can pursue two pathways in the Individualized Interdisciplinary Program of Study to obtain a master’s degree. The first pathway allows a student to combine deep study of one area of education with exposure to the breadth of educational theory and practice. The second pathway enables students to combine two graduate certificate programs with the Seminar in Teacher Leadership that completes the Educational Studies concentration.

A STEM Instructional Leader candidate, for example, may combine this with the Mind, Brain, and Teaching certificate to understand how teachers create learning environments based on the learning sciences as they deepen knowledge of pedagogical approaches within STEM education. Alternatively, a student may pursue the Gifted Education or Urban Education certificate (face-to-face only) to become a STEM–Gifted or STEM–Urban Education Instructional Leader. Combining programs prepares candidates for long-term success and STEM leadership within their schools and districts.

Graduate Certificate in Mathematics Instructional Leader PreK-6

Students in the Pre-K to sixth-grade levels are learning critical knowledge and skills necessary for mathematics and STEM-related college majors and careers. The Mathematics Instructional Leader (Pre-K–6) certificate program is an online, 18-hour certificate for current teachers who want to enhance their professional qualifications to develop motivating learning experiences for mathematics students and to inspire change within their school or district as a leader, coach, or mentor.

Through this program, graduate students become catalysts of highly engaging mathematics learning environments. Graduate students are immersed in active learning experiences to bolster their content knowledge in foundational mathematics, including a focus on early algebraic and geometric thinking.

Candidates for the Mathematics Instructional Leader certificate learn to incorporate research-based practices that support equity, access, and excellence for young mathematics learners, including underrepresented individuals, students with learning differences, and English learners. These practices include culturally relevant pedagogy such as asset-based instructional practices; problem-based and project-based learning; technology-enhanced instruction; mathematics explorations, inquiry-oriented strategies, problem solving, and critical thinking; computational thinking; and interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches.
