Wittenberg University has been a leader in the preparation of undergraduate teacher education for more than a century. Now teachers will be able to enjoy the same quality coursework at the graduate level.
Wittenberg faculty will be available to discuss the graduate program, which is designed to improve practical classroom results. Another unique aspect of the program are professional development courses, designed in collaboration with working master teachers, which are open to both degree-seeking and non-degree-seeking teachers.
Fall classes will examine the place of computers in the schools; understanding, encouraging and assessing thinking; ecological education for teachers; patterns of violence in the schools; alternative and reform movements in education; and applications of multiple intelligence theory. Classes will be held at times conducive to the schedules of practicing teachers.
The open house will provide more information about future offerings including a speakers series and conferences benefiting teachers and their students.
