McDaniel College is launching a Master of Science degree in Innovations in Teaching and Learning beginning Fall 2020. The program is approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
Innovations in Teaching and Learning, formerly Curriculum and Instruction, is also being offered completely online to provide flexible scheduling and convenience to working educators not only who are living and teaching in Maryland, but also throughout the region and nationwide. The program is particularly suitable for educators in PreK–12 schools.
The mission of the master’s degree in Innovations in Teaching and Learning addresses current classroom challenges and instructional trends in the PreK–12 environment. The revised program offers a greater emphasis on developing master teachers. The program continues to be responsive to changing trends and issues in education.
According to Margaret Pfaff, program coordinator for Innovations in Teaching and Learning, “Relevant problem-based and integrated learning forms the foundation of the program as candidates tackle relevant classroom challenges and apply course content to find innovative solutions.”
