The Jewish Education Leadership Institute (JELI) and the Loyola University Chicago Graduate School of Education are pleased to announce the inauguration, in the summer of 2007, of two separate Master of Education programs, specifically designed for day school/yeshiva teachers and administrators, which will be offered simultaneously.The full text of the posting, including a description of the course-work, can be found here as a .pdf file.
The M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision comprises thirtysix hours of graduate courses over two summers followed by an independent study and practicum in the fall following the second summer. Each course in the program is oriented to the special interests and needs of a Jewish Day School/Yeshiva administrator and is open only to those accepted into this specialized program. In addition, the M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision coursework satisfies requirements for State of Illinois Type 75 Administration Certificate Endorsement.
The M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction comprises 30 hours (10 courses) of graduate courses over two years with intensive summer classes, on-line classes the first academic year and the final academic year involved in action research in the students' classrooms. Moreover, each course in the program is oriented to the special interests and needs of a Jewish day school teacher. Candidates who complete this program will earn a Master of Education degree from Loyola and a Master Teacher Certificate from JELI.
JELI is also the home of an international job bank for day school/yeshiva jobs, organized by regions.
