M.Ed. Early Childhood

Candidates will delve into the full spectrum of early childhood education from birth through age eight (grade 3), and the programs within that range—infant and toddler programs, preschool and daycare programs, kindergarten programs, and primary education. They will create positive learning environments to enhance student motivation and creativity. Candidates will develop pedagogical approaches that take into account learner commonalities and differences to design goal-oriented instruction and assessment based on cognitive, social, affective, and psychomotor factors.

  • Identify the stages of development critical to educational outcomes in the early years
  • Create positive learning environments that are developmentally appropriate
  • Develop pedagogical approaches to meet the needs of all students
  • Create developmentally appropriate goals for instruction

M.Ed. Special Education

Candidates will research current trends, issues, and political dilemmas in special education and how they impact learning and teaching of students with special needs. They will examine the role of the special educator in accurately identifying students with special needs and using appropriate strategies, available services, resources and assistive technologies to design goal-oriented instruction and evaluation of students with special needs. Candidates will evaluate various behavior and education plans to design the individualized plans for education and assessment of students with special needs. Graduates will be prepared to teach and support special needs students at any grade level.

Through this program, candidates will learn fundamental concepts about language, language development, and culturally-linguistically diverse populations. They will also learn pedagogical principles and approaches for integrating language instruction across multiple domains of linguistic development—reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar and vocabulary—in a variety of educational contexts with special focus on assessing and giving feedback to learners and developing strategies for language-supported classroom learning.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand and apply basic linguistic concepts and primary domains of language learning
  • Assess language learners’ needs in a linguistically diverse classroom

  • Support the development of receptive and productive skills in language learners

M.Ed. Globalization in Education

Candidates will attain a deep understanding of international education and globalization in order to make positive change in the dynamic global context in schools worldwide. In order to meet the needs of diverse student populations in international schools, and attain socially responsible leadership, candidates will learn how to make informed and ethical decisions in complex and diverse educational environments.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Examine the impact of globalization on education and the appeal of international curricula
  • Critically analyze international mindedness, intercultural literacy, and global competence in educational settings
  • Use action research to study a problem or question related to multilingualism, international mindedness, or global education

M.Ed. Educational Technology

Candidates will learn how to effectively integrate technology in curriculum design and instructional coaching, create an instructional design solution, and implement it using the appropriate infrastructure and technology. At the end of this program, candidates will be equipped to be technology leaders in an educational environment who can direct, facilitate, and coach teachers, school leaders, and administrators in implementing effective technology to improve student learning experiences and enhance professional development of teachers and administrators at any level. Candidates will be able to create innovative, digitally focused instructional design solutions for any target audience from K-12 to higher education and professional development.

Candidates will choose an area of educational research and complete a capstone research project which will include a written submission and an oral defense of their findings.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Critically analyze and evaluate educational research
  • Identify appropriate methods for research questions

Testimonials


The value of what I am learning at TEACH-NOW has opened doors for me in instructional coaching, curriculum design and Edtech integration that I will value for many years to come. Most of all, I am becoming the teacher I always wanted to be for my students because of TEACH-NOW!

Gina H. (USA), 2020

We thought TEACH-NOW would be a means to an end for us, but we’ve found that the information shared is relevant and current and extremely practical. I love that I create something for an assignment and then use it in my classroom the next day!

Kathleen M. (China), 2019

Everything I learned through the program has been applicable, and none of my time was wasted with overly theoretical, impractical work. The instructors are highly skilled in their fields and the administration has been extremely responsive and helpful during the HR process of transferring my DC license to PA.

Rachel L. (Jordan), 2018

While professionally online teaching is not new to me, TEACH-NOW revived my passion for teaching. I have been instructing English Composition for a community college since 2011. The video and audio recordings of my instruction left me no room to hide and that is what I needed in order to evaluate myself honestly.

Emile N. (USA), 2019

Admission Requirements


Master’s Degrees

Prospective candidates must meet the following requirements to be eligible for admission to the Master’s degree programs:

  • Bachelor’s degree (or higher). A minimum of a Bachelor’s degree is required. Official baccalaureate degree transcripts are due at the time of application.
  • 3.0 GPA. We seek a GPA (Grade Point Average) of 3.0 or higher, or equivalent experience.
  • Transcript Evaluation (for non-US baccalaureate degrees): Transcript Evaluation is due at the time of Application for Master’s Programs. For applicants whose baccalaureate degree was obtained outside the United States or its territories, you will need to have your official baccalaureate degree transcript evaluated. Please see the note below on Transcript Evaluation and Translation.
  • Writing sample that demonstrates effective writing skills in English. We seek evidence of passion and enthusiasm for helping young people learn, grow, and develop through project-based virtual and/or physical classroom learning.
  • English language proficiency, if the writing sample is insufficient, can be evidenced through a number of proficiency assessments. We recommend the Duolingo English Proficiency Test.

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are documents that are produced by a college or university’s Office of the Registrar (or similar), and must be ordered according to the instructions provided by the university.

Whether issued as secure .pdf documents, via a third party (such as National Student Clearinghouse, or Parchment), or printed on blue tamper proof security paper, official transcripts are important to third parties so that they can be assured of authenticity (originating directly from the university) and content accuracy. Official transcripts are usually issued in portrait format, and contain the seal of the university and the signature of the University Registrar.

(For Non-US Baccalaureate Degrees) Transcript Evaluation and Translation

For those candidates seeking a teaching credential, please note that, as part of your application for a state-issued teaching credential, you will need to have your official baccalaureate degree transcript from non‐U.S. institutions evaluated for educational equivalence by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member agency at the time of application. 

See www.naces.org for a list of current NACES member agencies that can conduct a transcript evaluation and/or provide translation services. We maintain a special agreement with World Education Services; to use their service, please click here.
