GPAEA has been a proud, longstanding partner with Drake University, Morningside College, and Viterbo University to offer graduate credit so that educators in our area can advance their careers, increase pay levels, and offer deeper learning and support!
Effective July 1, 2015, the Professional Development office will implement the full definition of college/university accreditation standards by requiring all graduate level work through the course catalog to have a minimum of 2 hours of homework for every hour spent in class. Classes that are offered for two consecutive days will not be available for graduate credit; renewal credit will still be an option to meet your relicensure needs.
Implications for those who are taking classes are deeper connection to the learning, implementation opportunities over time, and increased feedback from instructors. Implications for instructors will be to offer varied learning opportunities outside of class. Thank you for your continued support and we appreciate partnering with you to meet your professional development needs.
