Dr. Mickey Kolis, Professor of Education StudiesThank you for considering the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire’s MEPD program. Our collaborative vision for this program is that we all work together in such a way that success is defined as “your PK-12 students learning more.” As teaching colleagues, we all bring strengths (and weaknesses) to any learning endeavor. While each learning journey is individual, we can support, encourage and push each other so that everyone learns more. We invite you to join us for this powerful learning adventure.
The MEPD program is a 30-credit, 20 month master's program comprised of 10 courses. Each 3-credit course spans 8 weeks, consisting of two Saturday face-to-face meeting times (one per month). In addition to the face-to-face meetings, cohort members are expected to reserve approximately 3 hours for online homework per week.
Program faculty will connect common themes throughout the 10 courses, providing the foundation for connected future learning. Every course will model between 5-20 classroom practices that teachers can immediately apply in their own classrooms.
MEPD graduateThe assignments were meaningful not only for us, but also our students. Instantly applicable assignments and techniques helped further my professional development.
MEPD graduateI’m glad I chose the UW-Eau Claire MEPD program because it helped me become a more confident and effective teacher. The courses were relevant and always focused on student learning. The MEPD program at UWEC increased my knowledge and skills in the areas of teaching practices, student learning, and leadership. My instructors challenged me to determine what constitutes valuable learning and the best practices in education. The MEPD experience has truly changed the way I teach and the effects it has on my students’ learning.
