Elon’s 30-hour Master of Education in Innovation (M.Ed.) is an online part-time, distance education program designed for teachers who are active educators in the k-12 setting. Educators outside of the k-12 setting will be considered on a case-by-case basis based on their ability to complete assignments and practice requirements of the program. All courses are delivered online in the summer, spring and fall semesters with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous classes.

“Elon’s M.Ed program has changed the way I teach by having me focus more on illuminating the need for systemic change as well as learning to adapt to a changing society of diverse learning communities. The program has taught me how to sharpen my cultural lens in order to provide my students with the tools they need, and to help me in my advocacy for promoting social justice action both in and outside my classroom.”

“As I went through the M.Ed, I knew my capstone project was going to be about classroom management and approaches to discipline. I wanted to keep on learning about restorative practices and I wanted to share this with people, because many times, I feel like teachers keep on doing the same thing because they do not know another way to do it. The solution is to share with those people.”

“Everything does not have to fit this typical mold. If I can get a student to explain slope in their own language, as walking up a stairway for example, then I’ve got the students on the right track, I’m doing what the M.Ed program has taught me to do, having kids think outside the box to formulate a non-traditional answer.”
