National Louis University in Chicago will be the first school to find out. In an effort to grow its graduate teaching program, the private institution will be offering a 60% discount for an introduction to teaching course this fall.
The Chicago-Tribune has more:
With the Groupon, prospective students can save nearly 60 percent on tuition for the single, three-credit course and earn credit toward a graduate degree, said Jocelyn Zivin, the vice president of marketing and communications for the Chicago-based, private university.”There are all kinds of factors in the K-12 world that are really discouraging teachers and people seeking teaching degrees,” Zivin said. “We’d like (potential students) to understand what the realities are, whether you are committed to this profession … and see if you have what it takes.”
“This is… an opportunity for our subscribers to take the first step toward what could be a new career,” Julie Mossler, Groupon’s communications director, told Mashable. “National Louis joins an innovative list of merchants who were the first in their industry to experiment with collective buying power, and do it on Groupon.”
