5 Ways Moreland’s Teacher Certification Curriculum Prepares Educators for Today and Tomorrow

| by Rita Molino


The most effective Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs) start with a foundation of thoughtful, relevant, and forward-thinking curriculum. At Moreland University, five key factors help our teacher certification curriculum stand out above the rest.  

1. Data-Backed Excellence  

Moreland’s TEACH-NOW Teacher Preparation Certificate Program is based on a cohort model encouraging candidate collaboration as they learn from each other, expert instructors, and mentors. 

The program comprises eight modules focusing on skills such as curriculum mapping, digital-age learning, and the culture of schooling. The embedded clinical practice unit provides hands-on classroom experience — building candidates’ confidence and competence. The TEACH-NOW program adapts to candidates’ schedules and goals, fostering success in the classroom. 

2. Technology Integration 

Embracing technology is crucial for creating a modern, student-centered educational environment.  

While evolving technology can pose challenges and elicit fear in new and established educators alike, Moreland is committed to preparing educators to effectively and ethically navigate this evolving landscape with confidence and creativity. From virtual learning to artificial intelligence (AI), our candidates are equipped to handle various technological challenges in their classrooms. 

“I am very happy with the education that I have received, particularly as it relates to technology in the classroom. I am a better teacher, and more than qualified, as a result of Moreland University’s array of programs and degrees.” — Beth Gambrell, 2023 TEACH-NOW graduate 

3. Feedback and Evaluation 

To excel as an educator and get fully certified, it is important to receive feedback to help you gauge your progress and understanding of new content.  

The TEACH-NOW cohort model enables candidates to learn alongside peers and work closely with instructors and mentor teachers. As recent Moreland candidate Ivonne puts it: “When I received feedback on my homework, I really felt from her feedback that she put her heart into going through my work… she really wanted to help me improve.” 

4. Specialization Options 

For those looking to specialize in a specific area or elevate their education, Moreland offers several options within its Master’s in Education (M.Ed.) program with teaching credential.  

Moreland M.Ed. candidates can specialize in Early Childhood, Special Education, Teaching Multilingual Learners, Globalization in Education, Educational Technology, or Educational Research. A master’s degree can open doors to higher-level opportunities and increased pay for your expertise.  

5. A Diverse Network 

The world is increasingly global and interconnected, and education is no exception. Moreland emphasizes the importance of a global education  in an increasingly interconnected world.  

Supporting educators from 165+ countries, our program is proudly diverse. Of candidates who started our programs in 2023, 44% identified as Caucasian (White), 27% as Asian, 15% as Black, 8% as Latino/Hispanic, and 4% as multiracial.  

Plus, our robust alumni network and post-graduation engagement opportunities foster global connections and collaboration that helps our candidates continue to learn, grow, and thrive throughout their careers.
