Collaborative teaching, sometimes called cooperative teaching or team teaching, involves educators working in tandem to lead, instruct and mentor groups of students. The Counselor, Leadership and Special Education Department within the AUM College of Education offers a Collaborative Teacher master’s degree program for Kindergarten through 6th grade. The traditional master’s program is for those who already hold a valid Alabama Class B Professional Educator Certificate.
An Alternative Master’s in Collaborative Teacher (K-6) is also available for those who have not earned an undergraduate education degree or teacher certification.
The Education Specialist in Special Education Collaborative Teacher (K-6) program uses a blend of technology and media to support candidates in a variety of learning environments. These courses are designed to help counselors provide specially designed interventions for their clients and to work with diverse populations.
Courses are enhanced with a technology focus on the latest evidence-based teaching and learning strategies as well as assist the candidate in developing his/her professional identity and professional practice as a special educator.
Teaching special education requires a person with a special set of teaching skills and knowledge, in addition to qualities such as compassion, humor, creativity and patience. Through coursework and laboratory experiences, the AUM College of Education will help guide you to become a successful, competent, committed, reflective special educator.
