The RTR Curriculum

The RTR curriculum is designed around a cohort structure, which means that all courses must be taken in a particular sequence.  While residents will register for specific courses, the content is delivered in a non-traditional manner, with support from the residents’ Clinical Resident Coach (CRC), and is spread throughout the residency year to ensure a better link between theory and practice.

SE Track

The SE Track Curriculum is designed around a cohort structure, which means that all courses must be taken in a particular sequence.  While residents will register for specific courses, the content will be delivered in a non-traditional manner with support from the residents’ Clinical Resident Coaches (CRCs).  In addition, much of the content that is taught in the traditional teacher preparation program — that would be covered in a single semester course — will be spread-out throughout the residency year to ensure a better link between theory and practice.
