CalTeach Summer Institute Workshops

Graduate Credit for 2017 CalTeach Summer Institute Workshops

 

UC Merced Extension is partnering with CalTeach to offer graduate credit for participants of the Summer Institute Workshops.  These workshops are FREE.  Click here for workshop information and registration on the CalTeach website.  A link to the flyer for each FREE workshop can also be found below.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Academic Credit can be purchased through Extension.  Below each workshop flyer is a link to either the CEU information or the Academic Credit information.  One semester CEU is equivalent to 15 hours (e.g., a two-day workshop) and cost $40 to cover administrative fees.  One semester Academic Credit is equivalent to 45 hours (e.g., two-day workshop plus reading, research, lesson design, classroom implementation, etc.) and cost $150.  Because this is a university graduate course, the cost includes both administrative fees and tuition.

NOTE: Please check with your district to confirm which kind of units (CEU or Academic Credit) you need to advance on the pay scale.
