B.5. Which of the above initial teacher preparation and advanced preparation programs are offered off-campus or via distance learning technologies? What alternate route programs are offered?
Candidates in the Kenai Peninsula College service area are able to complete the elementary education programs at that community campus site. Off-campus courses are available at other community campus sites, but the entire programs, to date, are not available at these sites.
All program areas offer some course work through distance learning technologies. All Educational Leadership and Special Education programs, including Early Childhood Special Education, are distance delivered programs. While it is possible to complete the MAT by distance only, most candidates do not opt to do so.
COE offers an alternate route option for high-need secondary content areas through the MAT program. COE also recently began offering an alternate route to initial special education certification through the Graduate Certificate in Special Education.
