Professional Learning for PreK-12 Educators


Educational Administration faculty from The College of Education and Human Ecology team with our center’s associates to deliver professional learning for PreK-12 educators. Prospective and current classroom teachers experience training that can be applied to attain an initial teaching license, as well as advance to and maintain a professional teaching license.  


We provide prospective and current PreK-12 educators on Ohio’s Alternative Resident Educator pathway with training in order to meet initial teacher licensure. Successful completion of the Intensive Pedagogical Institute (IPTI) and the Professional Development Institute (PDI) fulfill steps on an accelerated pathway to classroom teaching. This pathway allows students, schools and communities to benefit from the candidates’ content-related knowledge, life experience and successful career experience.  


Our Educators and Families for English Learners (EFs4ELs) partnership is a U.S. Department of Education, Office of English Language Acquisition grant funded partnership that delivers professional learning, both face-to-face and online, to enhance educators’ skills and competences related to teaching Ohio, Texas, and The District of Columbia’s English as second language children. Our collective work nurtures a community of learners – parents, children, practitioners, researchers, community organizers, policy makers and advocates.
