The Transformative Teaching program is a unique fully online, 30-credit master’s degree cohort program for working educators who want to further develop their anti-racist, social justice-oriented teaching and leadership skills. The program offers a seamless experience between your work as an educator and your engagement with the course material and participation in the cohort. We build a learning community through a thoughtful sequence of courses and a core faculty team that supports and scaffolds the development of cohort members throughout the 2-years.
The program provides experienced educators with opportunities that help them to: (1) continually identify and rethink the routines and assumptions that shape their work; (2) critically reflect upon and improve their practice with the support of a learning community of peers and faculty (3) design thoughtful and constructive responses to the obstacles that inhibit teaching and student learning; (4) develop the skills and dispositions to commit to a career as an educator; and (5) be leaders in their schools, their professional associations, and their communities as anti-racist, civically-engaged advocates for educators and students.
Mission Statement: The Transformative Teaching (TT) program’s mission is to help teachers develop knowledge, skills, and dispositions to provide ethical and transformative leadership as educators and civically engaged citizens. TT supports teachers to better prepare themselves to make important decisions about their teaching practice, their relationships with students, and about how to improve their schools. The ultimate aim of TT is to help teachers expand their capacity to teach effectively in a multiracial, multinational, multicultural world.
