This is a continuing education program for teachers who are looking for a way to transform their classroom into a different, more active and practical learning environment. In saying that, a basic background in lesson planning, curriculum development, teaching theory, and/or actual teaching would be required. This is obviously either attained through education itself and through actual practice. Some teachers may be new to teaching all together but will have some idea how to lesson plan, but may not have a lot of experience. Some teachers going through this certification program may have been teaching for a while and are looking for something different, or their school district may have an initiative for this. Either way a background in education and basic educational/teaching theory is important for beginning this program.
