BOSTON (PRWEB) April 16, 2018 -- Noodle Partners, the nation’s fastest-growing online higher education provider, today announced a partnership with Boston College's Lynch School of Education (LSOE) to offer master’s programs in Curriculum and Instruction, and Educational Leadership, for working professionals.
“The Lynch School of Education is one of the nation’s leading schools of education, and we are delighted to be working with their faculty to help them meet their institutional goals and academic mission,” said John Katzman, CEO of Noodle Partners.
A reimagining of the traditional online program management (OPM) model, Noodle Partners leverages pre-vetted providers and the internal strengths of university partners to create successful online programs. Bringing external expertise in key areas such as digital marketing, student recruitment, instructional design, and student support, Noodle Partners lowers costs while providing best-in-class service and transparency.
During 2018-19, LSOE will welcome working professionals to its two online master's programs. The Curriculum and Instruction program prepares educators to re-conceptualize what they teach, how they teach, and where teaching and learning can occur, while the Educational Leadership program is committed to preparing aspiring educational leaders to shape the learning culture and organizational structures in an array of settings.
“We’re excited to work with Noodle Partners,” said Stanton Wortham, Dean of the Lynch School of Education. “They’re flexible, innovative, cost-effective and transparent, and they will make a great partner. Boston College and the Lynch School anticipate that our new online programs in education will allow us to reach broader audiences with our distinctive blend of academic excellence and care for students’ holistic development."
“Noodle is now building out 20 degree programs with some of the best universities in the world, and the programs are scaling well," said Katzman. "As we continue to perfect our model, there will be a point this year that no reasonable provost or CFO will allow his or her university to sign a decade-long agreement handing tens of thousands from each student to the stockholders of a traditional OPM."
