Programs to consider:

Education (EdM): The Master of Education (Ed.M.) is an advanced program for K-12 teachers who have been teaching for a few years, and are ready to take the next step in becoming “master” teachers. The program’s mission is to facilitate the professional growth of teachers as educational leaders and to nurture a stance of continuous learning and improvement. This program offers three options: Social Justice, ESOL, Advanced Science and Mathematics Education. The Master of Education program is on hold for 2017. Please contact for more information.

ESOL Endorsement: The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement Program at Oregon State University focuses on helping Oregon's pre-primary through twelfth grade (P-12) teachers learn how to effectively work with students who are learning English as an additional language.

It will offer research and practice based information on how to effectively develop eLearning courses, how to use instructional technology to develop curriculum that motivates and engages the learner, as well as how to apply instructional design theories or models and builds technical skills that apply to a variety of eLearning settings.
