This month, Waldorf University launched its new Master of Arts in education, effective teacher program. The new program is designed to help working educators bolster their teaching efficiency, refine their leadership skills and grow their potential in their field.
“We are excited to add the Master of Arts in education to our online offerings,” said Waldorf University President Dr. Robert Alsop. “With the addition of this program, Waldorf has set itself apart from the competition in that there are few universities providing the Master of Arts in education with an emphasis in effective teacher. For those educators looking to build their leadership skills and maximize their effectiveness in the classroom, this program is for them.”
The effective teacher master’s degree program is designed for individuals who have completed an undergraduate degree in education and desire to continue to expand their educational foundation. The goal of this program is to allow teachers the ability to grow their student engagement, create a positive and inclusive learning environment and establish a culture of continuous educational improvement in their classrooms.
“The effective teacher master’s degree program is not simply building a larger portfolio of content, information and coursework,” said Dr. Larry Hill, Waldorf University professor of education. “This program is anchored in application and how learners utilize and model a wide range of effective strategies in their day-to-day professional life.”
“The courses in this new master’s program can also help many who are not in traditional education roles,” said Waldorf University’s director of graduate studies Dr. Neal McGregor. “This program can also benefit those that lead training in corporations, hospitals and other such institutions by becoming more effective in leadership and training efforts with these education-focused courses.”
The Master of Arts in education, effective teacher is set to start this fall. For more information, or to register, please visit Waldorf.edu.
