Professional Development

The College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services (CECH) offers a wide variety of opportunities for K-12 teachers to enhance their current credentials, meet the requirements of state licensure, and further their education through professional development opportunities.  Students can complete coursework in a flexible online delivery format, which is ideal for earning graduate credits required to renew a teaching license or to reinstate an expired teaching license.

Tuition for all Professional Development programs are offered at a reduced rate from the current graduate tuition rates. Many programs are offered with additional scholarship opportunity for those belonging to a cohort.  The cohort model is a professional development experience blending the convenience of online learning and face-to-face time with fellow educators.  The cohort may be a mixture of educators from one school district or multiple school districts in one geographic area.  The course content is delivered online and the cohort meets during a convenient time at a convenient place once per semester.  If you are interested in forming a cohort group at your school or within your district, or you would like to find an existing cohort to join, please contact us today.
