    The Endicott M.Ed. in International Education has recently undergone a thorough review in order to ensure that it continues to be both relevant and innovative for international educators. The result of this review is the inclusion of a new course: ‘Assessment for 21st Century Learning’, and the revision of the Technology in Education course.

    The program changes will come into effect in the near future, in order to reflect more clearly the learning outcomes of this program, it will be entitled: M.ED. IN TEACHING AND LEARNING: INTERNATIONAL
