2021 Workshops for K-12 Teachers and Administrators

Program format: Online

Professional development workshops for K-12 teachers and administrators are online graduate-level, non-degree courses designed to enhance an educator's skills and knowledge base while adding credit toward license renewal. Year-round online modules allow busy professionals to learn at their best time and at their own pace.

Self-paced modules can be completed in less than five weeks — or more if needed as long as it does not exceed the length of the semester. Additional details can be found on the Professional Development Dashboard
