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. Programs may be offered at a special professional development tuition rate.
Professional development programs are also being offered as a cohort group at a cost savings to you. The cohort model is a professional development experience blending the convenience of online learning and face-to-face time with fellow educators and a cohort mentor. The cohort can 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 throughout each 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 click here for more information.
