Illinois College’s Continuing Education program is designed to accommodate the continuing education and professional development needs of in-service teachers. Continuing Education courses will provide in-service teachers with opportunities to grow as educators and to more effectively meet the needs of all students by offering courses that: (a) deepen teachers’ knowledge of subjects they teach; (b) sharpen teaching skills used in the classroom; and (c) address new developments in the profession, and in education in general. In-service teachers in these courses will examine educational theory and research and will be guided through the development of applications to enhance their current educational practices.
Beginning mid-May, a series of professional development courses for in-service teachers and elective courses for the graduate students will be offered on the campus of Illinois College. Registration is now open for these one credit courses. See the complete list of courses, start items and instructor information.
