Program Overview

The Online Instruction Endorsement is designed for post-baccalaureate candidates that have an Instructional I or Instructional II Pennsylvania teaching certificate. This program will prepare teachers to design and deliver blended and online courses to teachers in grades K-12. As part of the program, students will complete a 20-hour capstone field experience in the K-12 classroom. In this field experience, students will demonstrate proficiency in the practical application of all program competencies. Students will develop and deliver a minimum of four blended or online lessons consistent with best practice in online instruction as learned in program coursework. Courses may also be completed in conjunction with the general Master of Education program.

This program helps Level I certified teachers complete the requirements for obtaining Level II teacher certification in Pennsylvania.  Additional certifications that graduates of the program may be eligible to apply for include:

  • Special Education
  • Reading Specialist
  • Education Administration (Pennsylvania Principal certification)
  • ESL Program Specialist
  • Autism Endorsement

Students may also choose to pursue a more general concentration, with courses pulled from more than one certification area. This does not lead to additional certification but it does provide students with a master’s degree and additional expertise in several areas.
