Re-Imagining What School Could Be.

• Master's in Teaching & Learning • Master's in Educational Leadership •

For innovative educators seeking to develop capacity as teacher leaders, instructional coaches, and building leaders to support educational transformation.

The Vision

By completing this Master’s Program, educators will know and be able to apply the core components of a learner-centered model (students driving their learning) within instruction, assessment, and leadership, be able to identify the requirements of a system that supports learner-centered pedagogies, and be able to create a plan and continue to support transforming practices towards a learner-centered model.

The Program

• 15 Months • Online • Fully Accredited •

2Revolutions and What School Could Be are partnering to offer a Master’s of Education in Learner-Centered Schools & Systems. Through a robust competency framework–which includes a focus on teaching and learning and leadership competencies–as well as the skills and dispositions that support implementing those competencies, educators are better equipped to implement learner-centered and equitable classrooms and systems, with a focus on learner-centered pedagogy and leadership.

The program is organized into two Blocks. Block 1 is 15 credits and earns a Certification from What School Could Be and 2Revolutions in Learner-Centered Schools & Systems. Block 2 is 15 additional credits and culminates in an interdisciplinary Capstone Defense that provides an opportunity to integrate the learning from throughout the program and address a problem of practice that hinders a move toward learning-centered and equitable classrooms or leadership context. Learning will occur through a combination of asynchronous online (80%) and synchronous virtual and in-person learning experiences (20%), with a combined focus on both individual and district transformation.

  • Allows learners to pursue a flexible pathway based on their authentic needs and interests and is centered around meeting the core competencies in ways that are meaningful and authentic to their work and context.
  • Supports learners to learn at their own pace by leveraging instructional content or moving directly to culminating tasks, which provide opportunities to demonstrate competency.
  • Anticipates learning needs of both the individual and the collaborative to build competency and support leadership development.
  • Ensures equity of access and the ability to build capacity at scale because of program cost-effectiveness.
