About the Program
This program’s aim is to inspire educators to examine their teaching and their student’s learning to ask the following questions –
- How can we better prepare students to be tomorrow’s leaders, entrepreneurs and inventors?
- How can we change learning environments to better engage and inspire our students?
- How can we use research to better inform our practice in both teaching and learning?
The Instructional Psychology and Technology Program in the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education is proposing a new online master’s degree in 21st century learning. This 32 credit hour masters will be offered on the Janux system and encourage practicing teachers both certified by traditional and non-traditional routes to explore the future of learning. The courses include fundamental ideas of classroom management and educational psychology. It builds on that foundation to explore the ideas of 21st century learning including collaboration, problem based learning, and integrating technology in meaningful ways. Then to support teachers in their innovation, they will also learn about applying educational research into practice, assessment strategies for digital age learning, while engaging in an exploration of digital literacies and their role in promoting the STEM pipeline.
This is a cohort-based program, starting each January, and students commit to take six or seven hours each semester until they finish 18 months later. The courses are offered in spring, summer, fall, spring (2) and summer (2). This is a structured cohort model – students must commit to enroll in all classes each semester. If a student decides to take a semester off, then they must wait until the next offering of that semester. New cohorts start each January with December 1 application deadline. A maximum of 25 students will be accepted for each cohort. Students in each cohort will be required to travel to Norman, OK for one meeting.
