Explain where you found information explaining that the MSED program does not lead to licensure.
Assignment: Seeking Resources at Walden University
The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership website and the “Welcome to Walden University and Graduate Study” and “Standards for MSED Program and Professional Educator Success” documents describe Walden University’s vision, mission, and culture of scholarship. Additionally, they provide an overview of your master’s degree program. There is a wealth of support available to you as a Walden candidate. Are you starting to get an idea of how to find resources that will support your learning while studying at Walden University? Are there some resources you feel you will use more than others? Be sure to take the time to experience the vast array of resources you have at your fingertips. This is just a small glimpse of supports to help you as your work toward your MSED.
For this Assignment, you will familiarize yourself with all things Walden and RWRCOEL by conducting a Walden University Scavenger Hunt.
- Review the Learning Resources for this module as well as each link on the course navigation menu.
- Consider the wealth of information contained in the Learning Resources and how you might use each resource throughout your MSED program.
- Review the Walden University Scavenger Hunt document in the Learning Resources to familiarize yourself with the required “finds” for this Assignment.
- Use the MSED Documents area as a source for finding answers to the Scavenger Hunt document.
Make sure you include cited references from the course material and at least one outside source (see acceptable outside sources in the MSED Documents area) to support your thinking.
Note: This Assignment allows you to search for and review valuable Walden University resources. It also allows you to receive quality feedback from your Instructor; this Assignment will be a complete/incomplete grade.
