The University of Kentucky College of Education is launching a new Professional Learning Series. Open to anyone, the series is designed to help participants level up their skills in a selection of self-paced and live workshops—all online this summer.
When participants successfully complete a workshop, they will earn a digital badge to add to their resume, email signature, or website. Registration is open now.
“We wanted to create a way for people who value lifelong learning to spend time with the same world-class faculty our students know and love. Our faculty are dynamic, engaging, and enjoy the process of making their knowledge and research accessible to the broader community. As a land grant institution, we are dedicated to putting into practice community-relevant and community-focused solutions,” said Margaret Mohr-Schroeder, associate dean and professor.
The workshops are available to anyone – no matter where they are located. Workshops do not lead to college credit, but can build toward a micro-credential.
Faculty will cover topics in health and wellness, teacher enhancement, and early childhood education. Designed to be enriching and affordable, the series draws on the expertise of faculty in a college ranked number one in Kentucky and among the top 30 public colleges of education in the nation.
Topics offered this summer are ideal for pre-service or in-service teachers (PK-12 ), nonprofit educators, parents/guardians, community professionals, and business leaders. They are designed to bolster participants’ proficiency and marketability in the professional arena.
