Educator Workshops

Educator Workshops have served educators in meeting their professional development needs for over 35 years.

We continuously work to maximize access to our programs by offering workshops year-round, on-campus, on-site at school districts across the Commonwealth, and online.

Our programs are of high quality and rigor. We target current and critical topics. The programs offered are driven by the needs identified by administrators and educators. Workshops offer three graduate credits, which meet many needs for educators including: permanent certification, salary improvement, professional growth, lifelong learning, and requirements for Act 48.

Fall 2014 Workshops

EDW 763 50A (CRN 9152) Emergency Readiness

Location: Online Distance Learning - MU Online

Dates: 09/29/14-10/13/14

Professor: Dr. Jeffrey Wimer

Course Description: This workshop will teach participants how to prepare, respond and recover from natural disasters, human-caused emergencies, and accidents. This workshop does not discuss first aid or the immediate treatment of injuries, but rather the steps necessary to prepare for the havoc and devastation caused by tornadoes, earthquakes and hurricanes as well as terrorist attacks or bombings. In a disaster, it might be several days before vital services are restored; therefore, emergency readiness training not only involves learning about personal safety, but also preparing teachers and their families for the traumatic stress that is often associated with being away from home during a disaster.


EDW 768 50A (CRN 10688) The Dark Side of the Internet

Location: Online Distance Learning - MU Online

Dates: 10/12/14 - 11/01/14

Professor: Dr. Nanette Dietrich

Course Description: This workshop will equip educators with a deep understanding of the risks and opportunities regarding current communication technology including internet safety, social networking, child-identity theft, cyber harassment and portable technologies. Legal, technical, psychological, and social dynamics will all be addressed including practical application to the school environment.
