Immaculata University Responds to Today's Educational Needs

IMMACULATA UNIVERSITY, PAImmaculata University’s College of Graduate Studies is responding to the needs of educators and healthcare workers in the region and across the state of Pennsylvania as the COVID-19 pandemic changes the landscape of several industries and the route students take to pursue their educational goals.

A recently introduced graduate-level endorsement program for online instruction offers professional development to prepare teachers for hybrid and remote learning. This 12-credit program is available fully online with classes focusing on design, development, assessment, professionalism, and emerging trends of online learning, and on delivery techniques for online teaching.

“Taught by faculty with real-world experience within the online learning environment, Immaculata’s online instruction endorsement program will help educators transform the traditional teaching and learning experience, which is particularly relevant given the challenges faced by our schools today” states Marcia Parris, Ed.D., dean of the College of Graduate Studies.

K.C. Testerman, who designed Immaculata’s online instruction curriculum and teaches in the program, states, “There are so many possibilities of collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication that could be opened up when technology is introduced to the learning space.”

In addition to the new endorsement program, Immaculata is now offering its PreK-4 teaching certification fully online. This program is geared toward those who already hold a bachelor’s degree and are interested in entering the education field. With flexible seven-week classes, students can receive their PreK-4 certification while also earning a master’s degree in Educational Leadership.

Busy healthcare workers, aspiring to lead in these challenging and unique times, may enhance their credentials by earning a Master of Science in Nursing or a Master of Healthcare Management. Immaculata is now also offering these two degrees in a fully online delivery format to meet the demanding schedules of today’s healthcare professionals.
