Continuing Studies for Teacher Leaders
Graduate courses offered through IWU's Continuing Studies for Teacher Leaders are designed to strengthen the professional competencies of P-12 practitioners. These courses address contemporary educational challenges by employing a theory-to-practice approach to adult learning. Credit for these courses may be applied toward renewal of the Indiana state teaching license.
Continuing Studies for Teacher Leaders are offered throughout the year in classroom locations across the state of Indiana as well as online. At times, IWU partners with other associates to provide a broad array of courses that will fulfill the requirements of licensure renewal. The courses are offered as credit for possible license renewal and are not eligible to apply toward any degree or professional preparation program at IWU. These courses (offered by Performance Learning Systems [PLS]) are not applicable toward the completion requirements of any School of Educational Leadership degree or professional preparation program.
Educators employed by school districts in states outside Indiana are welcome but are strongly advised to consult with their own state licensure office prior to registering.
