Interested in earning a National Director Credential for Early Childhood Administrators while you are working on your master’s degree?
The Teaching and Learning (T&L) Department at the University of North Dakota has entered into a partnership with the McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership to offer Aim4Excellence, an online national Director Credential for Early Childhood administrators.
Graduate students are able to enroll in the Aim4Excellence modules to begin working towards a Director's Credential through the McCormick Center. Nine modules are available, with three modules covered in each of the three UND courses, offered as T&L 590 Administration & Leadership in ECE I, II and III. Students will be able to follow the Aim4Excellence modules as designed by the McCormick Institute, and students will also be guided by one of our department's Early Childhood professors who will engage in discussion boards, blogs and other related assignments.
These courses can be taken as electives towards your graduate degree in Early Childhood Education. This is a wonderful opportunity if you are interested in an administrative credential.
