UW-Eau Claire's master of education in professional development: A powerful learning adventure

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's master of education in professional development is a blended weekend and online program designed specifically for busy educators seeking a meaningful master’s degree that will have a lasting, positive impact on student learning. Students will attend class on campus only one Saturday per month, with the majority of the program available online.

The curriculum, based on national board certification standards, emphasizes collaborative leadership. Each course is co-taught with a public school teacher, and all program courses address four connected strands of learning: differentiation, cultural relevance, dispositions and community.

“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,'" said Dr. Mickey Kolis, professor of education studies. "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."
