K-12 Professionals

Offer a Class

Staff development is important for school districts to help teachers stay up-to-date on the latest teaching methods, curriculum, and technologies.  We welcome school districts nationwide to offer professional development for teachers through NDSU Distance and Continuing Education.  If you plan to offer a face-to-face class for teachers in your school or district and would like to offer graduate-level professional development credit, consider NDSU Distance and Continuing Education as your partner in professional development for teachers.

To offer a class for K-12 teachers you must complete the course proposal and course syllabus forms below. All classes offered are approved through NDSU Distance and Continuing Education, the appropriate NDSU department, and the NDSU Graduate School.

The Course Proposal Form is required in all cases. An electronic Course Syllabus Form is provided, but you may submit your own as long as it contains all of the components included in our form. To send your own syllabus, create a word document and attach it to an email to Barbara Schumacher or fax it to 701-231-7016. If you have further questions or need an alternative format, please contact our office at 1-800-726-1724 or 701-231-7015.
