Tabor to add teaching programs
Beginning this summer, Tabor College will offer what it says will be the nation’s first online program to train educators to meet the needs of students who struggle with learning dysfunction and difficult home environments.
The college will offer a master’s degree in neuroscience and trauma.
“Education and neuroscience have historically functioned in two separate silos without informing each other’s research,” said David Stevens, lead graduate faculty member, about the new M. Ed program. “Today, more than ever, there is an overwhelming need for teachers to understand how stress and trauma affect the lives and cognition of their students.”
Plans are to repurpose the second floor of the library building to house the college’s education department.
