Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning


The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is fundamentally changing teacher preparation by adapting it for the 21st century. The WW Academy focuses on the way students learn today—and will learn tomorrow. Academy teachers will be prepared to bring change to the nation’s classrooms and school districts, as well as the entire teaching profession.

A New Era in Teacher Preparation

The WW Academy’s collaboration with MIT and its Cambridge location make the Academy a true intellectual destination for those who want to think differently about education and the future of teaching. Teacher candidates learn in the same way they will teach, including live classroom practice, one-on-one faculty mentoring, simulations, game-based learning, and online learning.

Candidates in the WW Academy’s M.Ed. program prepare for licensure in biology, chemistry, or mathematics. They help design tools for the modern classroom and learn how to customize their expertise for all types of learners. Candidates are supported by faculty and staff throughout the program and for two years after they graduate to ensure they have a fulfilling and long-lasting career.

"How We Learn"

The Woodrow Wilson Academy’s competency-based approach is designed around measurable skills, knowledge, and dispositions. Teacher candidates must learn, practice and master a specific set of teacher competencies through challenges—cases based on real situations that teachers face in the classroom—to successfully lead their own classrooms from the very beginning of their careers.

Each teacher candidate’s path through the Woodrow Wilson Academy’s challenge-based curriculum will be individualized. Instead of being determined by a set number of credit hours, the curriculum and pace of learning adapt to meet the needs of each teacher candidate.

"Change Teaching. Change Learning. Change the World."

The WW Academy is open to all types of prospective teacher candidates who hold baccalaureate degrees in math, science and related fields, from recent grads to second-career candidates. There are three application deadlines: October 16, November 30 and January 31. Prospective students are encouraged to apply early.
