This is the third course in the UAS Educational Leadership Program. It is the first course focusing on Curriculum and Instructional Leadership. This course reviews the best practices of teaching and learning and the skills of supervision, assessment and evaluation in schools. The student will review learning theories, curriculum development, and accountability. Students will begin the development of an interdisciplinary project using the Parallel Curriculum Model.
This course integrates ED691, a 150 hour internship experience, in the cohort member’s chosen school and weekly instruction via distance technology. Candidates will validate their understanding of the role of supervision in instructional improvement, assessment, program evaluation, emerging technologies, learning theories and curriculum development. They will apply the concepts and the theories discussed.
The integration of courses resulted from a review of the literature and consultation with key education stakeholders, such as superintendents, principals and the Department of Education and Early Development.
