Master of Education - Instructional Leadership

Find balance between your work and family life by earning your instructional leadership degree online at Saint Leo University. Raise your profile with the College of Education & Social Science's fully online Master of Education (MEd) with a concentration in instructional leadership.

This online program offers an innovative approach to teacher leadership based on the Teacher Leadership Model Standards (TLMS). The national standards are intended to codify, promote, and support teacher leadership as a vehicle for transforming schools to meet the needs of 21st-century learners.

Rather than serve as a comprehensive job description for teacher leaders, the Standards instead describe seven domains of leadership. Each domain is further developed and supported by a list of functions that a teacher leader who is an expert in that domain might perform.

Domain I: Fostering a Collaborative Culture to Support Educator Development and Student Learning Domain II: Accessing and Using Research to Improve Practice and Student Learning Domain III: Promoting Professional Learning for Continuous Improvement Domain IV: Facilitating Improvements in Instruction and Student Learning Domain V: Promoting the Use of Assessments and Data for School and District Improvement Domain VI: Improving Outreach and Collaboration with Families and Community Domain VII: Advocating for Student Learning and the Profession

Teachers in instructional leadership positions foster a culture of success that can reverberate across schools, districts and organizations. Working with their colleagues, teacher leaders can implement strategies that improve student learning. Research shows that collective leadership has a stronger influence on student achievement than individual leadership. The Teacher Leader Model Standards seek to generate collective leadership by fostering professional discussion about best practices and advancing new roles for teachers to serve.
