Video Series: Candidate Attributes

This post launches a new series of videos in which you’ll hear from WW Academy faculty and staff about things they’re working on and aspects of the degree program they’re most excited about. In this video, Dr. Peter Laipson, the WW Academy’s Chief Administrative Officer, outlines the traits of an ideal Academy candidate.

The WW Academy is now accepting applications for its master’s degree. Candidates will progress through a problem-based, individualized, adaptive curriculum by mastering core teaching competencies. WW Academy students experience the challenge-based curriculum in a blended environment, including online and face-to-face learning. Master’s candidates are also immersed in clinical settings in Boston-area public schools. Throughout their first two years of teaching they will receive continued mentoring and professional development. For more information about the program and the application process, click here.
