Teaching and Leadership

This program is designed for licensed, employed education personnel who desire to enhance their competencies as practitioners in school settings.

The teaching and leadership program is a program offered in communities convenient to those enrolled, and offered in a hybrid (part face-to-face and online) delivery model. It is designed to provide the credit hours and student contact time under conditions that are convenient to practicing educators. The site-based program is a sequence of courses that examines the research on effective schools, instruction and staff development while building competence in the use of applied research methodologies. The program is offered at a limited number of sites approved by the Illinois Board of Higher Education. 

There are two tracks for the Teaching and Leadership program. One results in the the Teacher Leader endorsement for licensed educators. The other, with some of the same courses, does not result in an endorsement.
