BW Offers New Online Mild/Moderate Intervention Specialist License

A new online,13-month Mild/Moderate Intervention Specialist License in Education program is being offered through Baldwin Wallace University.

The graduate-level program, which will begin in June 2011, incorporates the same quality curriculum and faculty support as the traditional seated program but with the convenience of online study. 

Designed for busy professionals facing demanding schedules, multiple responsibilities or long commutes, the program includes nine online courses leading to a license. Students interested in pursuing degree completion can apply these courses toward a Baldwin Wallace University Master of Arts in Education. 

“Our new online Mild/Moderate Intervention Specialist License is a dynamic, cohort-based program that includes quality coursework taught by full-time BW faculty," said Karen Kaye, Ph.D., chair of the Division of Education.

"Unlike some online programs that are de-personalized, large in size or monotonous, we designed ours to reflect the same types of experiences that would be found in our traditional seated program – lively discussion, practical application coursework, intense faculty interaction, field experiences, relevant projects and more,” she added.

“This online license is another example of how the College is integrating the tradition of its well-established and successful education program with technology to meet the needs of today’s educators,” explained Kaye. “Throughout northeast Ohio and beyond, BW has been recognized as a leader in preparing K-12 teachers and administrators. It is a degree that is well respected and valued.” 

The online Mild/Moderate Intervention Specialist License program is for licensed teachers who have 12 hours of reading core, including a course in phonics. Successful completion of Praxis II is required for license eligibility in Mild/Moderate Needs.
