The Elon M.Ed.
Elon’s newly structured 33-hour M.Ed. program allows you to choose a concentration in Innovation in Education or Academically/Intellectually Gifted (AIG). Both concentrations are part-time and designed for teachers who are graduates of accredited institutions and initially licensed to teach. The program has both face-to-face and online/hybrid courses.
Our program has been designed to disrupt practitioners’ traditional concepts of schooling and move teachers toward more progressive visions and praxis. Candidates are: (a) asked to reimagine education from a range of theoretical perspectives, allowing for equitable learning opportunities that are respectful and responsive of students’ backgrounds; (b) introduced to progressive student-centered pedagogies and classroom practices; (c) offered opportunities to experiment in their own practice with innovative pedagogies.
*Please note: The Elon M.Ed. is currently pending approval by SACSCOC.
