The Richard W. Riley College of Education will be hosting online information sessions for our Master of Education programs in:


  • curriculum and instruction
  • literacy
  • special education intervention

You can register for any or all open houses by clicking our RSVP link to register for an open house.


We are hosting our open houses in an online conferencing application called Blackboard Collaborate. You can think of it a bit like Skype for a group. To participate, you'll need an internet connected computer and speakers or headphones to be able to hear the presentations. To ask questions verbally, you will need a microphone (any laptop microphone will be fine) or you can type your message in a chat window. You can expect a short presentation and the chance to ask questions about the program. Once you RSVP, we will send you detailed information on what to expect and a link to use to join the information session.
