An information session on the Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction program is planned at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 27 in Shawnee State University's new Education Building at 945 Fourth Street, Room 126.
Kenneth Carlson, Ed.D., associate professor and graduate program facilitator in Teacher Education, will be conducting the session along with other faculty who teach in the program.
"We want potential students to understand the blended education delivery system," Carlson said. "Blended education allows teachers who are working full-time jobs and have families the opportunity to get a master's degree with some attendance on campus and some classes via the Web."
Students in the program have commented that although they take some classes online, they have the added benefit of having the professors available close to home.
The MOE program is a cohort program that has a sequence of classes the students follow. Each fall a new cohort begins. The first cohort will be graduating in the spring on Saturday, May 7.
All of the classes are available for professional development to help teachers meet their certification requirements also.
