Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning



The WW Academy seeks to be a vehicle for transforming teacher education and school leader policy and practice at scale.

A New Era in Teacher Preparation


It’s time to focus on the way students learn today—and will learn tomorrow.

Computers that once occupied whole rooms can now fit in your pocket. Capacity and speed continue to grow exponentially. But today’s young people have inherited a century-old educational model that hasn’t kept up.

The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is fundamentally changing master’s-level teacher preparation by adopting it for the 21st century.

We’re preparing tenacious math and science teachers who will stay in classrooms, drive student achievement, and lead change at the school and district levels.

As a master’s degree candidate at the WW Academy, you’ll prepare for licensure in biology, chemistry, or mathematics. You’ll help design tools for the modern classroom and learn how to customize your expertise for all types of learners. At your pace, you’ll progress through a problem-based, individualized, adaptive curriculum by mastering core teaching competencies. As a WW Academy student, you’ll experience the challenge-based curriculum in a blended environment, including online and face-to-face learning.

You’ll be introduced to the classroom early in your program. By being paired with a veteran teacher at a Boston-area public school, you will gain valuable, practical knowledge and experience that cannot be replicated in a lecture hall. Coupled with the safe practice space of the simulation lab, your clinical experience will prepare you for the real-world problems and scenarios that arise in the classroom. Dedicated faculty mentors will support you throughout the program and for two years after you graduate to ensure you have a fulfilling and long-lasting career.
