Who should take a short course?

Licensed In-Service Teachers: Teachers currently working in the field can earn graduate credit towards license renewal. Administrators using evaluation protocols may recommend short courses to their teachers for improvement in targeted areas.

Pre-Service Teacher Candidates: Undergraduates in the Department of Teacher Education can also take short courses. These courses are a good fit for anyone desiring a hands-on and practically based approach. While short courses are not part of degree program requirements, these courses are a great fit if you need an extra credit hour or two for a full semester course load.
