Online Courses

Dates for the 2023–24 school year to be determined.

These six week, facilitator-led courses are designed for teachers to better understand instructional activities to help students develop essential competencies, either in core content or other applicable areas. Through these interactive courses, educators learn competency-development practices for any content area. Each week, instructional activities will be reviewed and then discussed with colleagues, with facilitation from a Recognized Trainer. Course activities are asynchronous and can be done anywhere at any time of day.

The course fee is $20 per person. Each course is capped at 30 students, and participants will receive 18 CEUs with an option to receive one graduate credit hour from Baker University (additional $80 payment is required).
