Teach-Now rebrands as Moreland University
American graduate school Teach-Now has announced that it will now be rebranded as Moreland University.
Teach-Now stated that the decision to rebrand comes as a result of the global shift in favour of online education.
The newly-named Moreland University is one of America’s fastest-growing graduate schools of education.
The institution hopes that, by expanding their provisions to replicate a university-style structure and acting as an umbrella institution for multiple colleges, they will be able to continue this rate of growth into the future.
The decision to rebrand Teach-Now has been implemented eight years after its foundation, starting out with 10 teacher candidates back in 2012.
The institution’s name change became official after it received the approval of The District of Columbia Higher Education Licensure Commission, in July earlier this year.
Moreland University saw 56% spike in applications over the H1 2020
As a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, and the consequent shift towards online education, Moreland University saw a 56% increase in applications over the first six months of 2020.
In order to harness this success, alongside this rebranding, Moreland University has also implemented a major expansion that has enabled it to include additional degree-granting fields.
Moreland University says it has over 5,500 graduates and candidates across over 135 countries. The intention of the new expansion plan is to develop their online, activities-based collaborative learning offerings, while focusing on branching out into other educational fields, too.
Moreland founder believes new direction ‘a natural next step’
Dr Emily Feistritzer, Moreland University’s Founder and CEO, described her vision for the future of the University.
Dr Feistritzer said: “This is a natural next step for this institution. We have grown exponentially, and the new organizational structure will allow us to expand into other areas. It’s an exciting milestone for our faculty and students.”
