The Curriculum and Instruction Program is designed for professional educators who wish to broaden their understanding of teaching and learning. From a place of inquiry, teachers examine educational practices, deepen their knowledge of instruction and assessment methodology, investigate the connection between theory and practice, and study an area of interest within the context of their own practice. In addition to instructional leadership abilities, individuals will explore potential roles throughout the educational community.
