The University of Tennessee at Martin now offers two new course concentrations in gifted and talented education and instructional design and technology for anyone wishing to earn a master of science in education or complete plus-30 required training hours.
The five-course sequence in gifted and talented education is taught online by instructor Genevieve Felts-Meyer and can be used as a gifted endorsement for a current teaching license.
The courses include characteristics and needs of the gifted/talented, strategies and programs for teaching the gifted/talented, advanced methods in gifted education, theories and trends in gifted education and practicum in gifted education. Participants must have already completed an entry-level special education course, either as an undergraduate or graduate student.
The second new concentration, instructional design and technology, focuses on improving online instructional methods. Participants will learn to teach online courses in a virtual classroom and use technology and online resources to enhance face-to-face instruction in a traditional classroom.
Courses in this concentration include foundations of distance learning, instructional design, teaching and learning at a distance, creating collaborative learning environments and educational technology.
