Graduate Workshops (ND8170)


The Patton College of Education has developed six online professional development courses to support P-12 teachers who are currently hosting teacher candidates and/or interns in their classrooms, or who plan to do so in the near future. These courses can be taken for course credit at the rate of $130 per credit hour plus fees. Each course runs for 6-7 weeks. They are worth 1 graduate credit hour each which can be used for re-licensure, but NOT towards an Ohio University degree program.  As part of the new Professional Development Compensation Model for Mentor Teachers, P-12 educators who regularly host professional interns through The Patton College of Education are eligible to take these online professional development courses for free.
