Teacher Leadership for Student Learning Graduate Certificate

Department: Dean’s Office

The purpose of the Teacher Leadership for Student Learning Graduate Certificate is to develop the knowledge, skills and abilities that teachers need to learn from their own teaching as well as facilitate the learning of others in their school to generate student learning. This rigorous program prepares participants to meet the Teacher Leader Model Standards and the National Staff Development Council’s standards (now called Learning Forward) for engaging in and facilitating professional learning. Each certificate course will require participants to become familiar with the theoretical framework and research related to professional learning, engage in and facilitate in professional learning activities, generate data that represents the learning activity, and reflect on their own experiences to make evidence based decisions about teaching and learning.
