Overview

Aloha Kumu faculty will work with groups of teachers to develop inter-disciplinary MEd-CS degree programs specifically designed to help them address the needs, goals, and aspirations of their students, schools, districts, and/or communities. 

We will collaborate with teachers to articulate program goals and objectives; develop a program schedule; select courses; develop activities and experiences; and design a plan b project. Aloha Kumu faculty have developed cohorted MEd-CS degree programs for K-12 teachers at various private and public schools in Hawai‘i. We have developed programs that have focused on National Board Certification, community-based education, Native Hawaiian and Indigenous Education, Aloha ‘Aina Leadership, and place-based education.

 While many of our MEd-CS programs have served teachers at schools in the Nanakuli-Wai‘anae and Campbell-Kapolei complexes within the Hawaii-Department of Education, we look forward to working with and supporting teachers throughout Hawai‘i.

Aloha Kumu is currently offering a MEd-CS program/cohort focusing on National Board Certification-Teacher Leader for teachers in the Nanakuli-Wai‘anae and Campbell-Kapolei Complex area schools. Students who complete this program may be eligible to add an additional teaching field to an existing Hawaii license.
