The Classroom Management Strategies (CMS) micro-credential is made up of targeted education courses focused on classroom management strategies for teachers in PK-12 international schools.
This CMS micro-credential will support all components of the School of Education mission statement, but is particularly aligned to the following elements: (1) committing to the intellectual, personal, and professional growth of practicing professionals; (2) providing transformative educational experiences; (3) inspiring reflective practitioners who possess the knowledge, skills and dispositions to model and promote a lifelong passion for learning; and (4) implementing inclusive pedagogies.
The CMS micro-credential will also be aligned with and promotes all elements of the IGPE mission statement, especially highlighting: (1) ensuring high-quality coursework for educators in PK-12 international schools; (2) fostering global collaboration; (3) inviting divergent perspectives; and (4) making positive contributions to teaching and learning processes.
Scaffolded in the program structure and incorporated into each of the courses of this micro-credential are research-informed practices that provide a solid foundation for those just entering the field of education, and for those already well versed in the profession, provide focused study on classroom management, an aspect of educator preparation that Buffalo State alumni identify as the most pressing need for more professional development.
