Web Based Classes and Other Forms of Professional Development
Our web-based classes allow you to learn and collaborate with other educators without leaving home. The eight-week sessions provide graduate-level instruction in a schedule that fits the demands of your real life. You can pursue an entire master’s degree in Educational Design and Technology or just take a single course to keep your teaching licensure current—and stay current in your practice!
The MTM Project has also developed non-credit, web-based professional development resources which can be used by an entire school faculty or an individual who wishes to grow in her own skills. Check out an example from our Best Practices Series, developed in collaboration with the School of Education at Concordia University Wisconsin.
From June 17-19, 2013, we will also be hosting a special Best Practices Seminar on 1:1 initiatives in P-12 schools. This three-day, intensive workshop, on the beautiful lakeshore campus of Concordia University Wisconsin, will help administrators and lead educators consider the pedagogical, practical, and logistical implications of moving to a 1:1 initiative. Please contact Cindy Guth (firstname.lastname@example.org), Coordinator of Member Services, for more information or to reserve your team’s spot.
Programs for the Students within MTM Project Member Schools
The MTM Project is committed to providing dynamic twenty-first century learning opportunities for the students within our member schools as well. Here is an overview of some of the special member schools-only opportunities we provide:
STEAM Camp Discount – Each summer, the MTM Project, in collaboration with the School of Education at Concordia University Wisconsin, offers dynamic and content-rich summer camp programming in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) at a variety of locations throughout the country. Students from MTM Project member schools qualify for a $50 discount with early registration.
APP Camp Discount - (NEW IN 2013!) Recognizing that high-school students want engaging summer learning opportunities as well, we are launching an APP Camp in summer, 2013. This one-week camp, offered in collaboration with the School of Education and the Computer Science Department of Concordia University Wisconsin, will lead participants through the creativity, science, and the fun of developing a app for iPod, iPad, or Android platforms. Students from MTM Project member schools will receive priority registration opportunity as well as a discount on the camp fees. Contact Cynthia Guth (email@example.com) for more information.
Dual Credit Program - The MTM Project, in collaboration with Concordia University Wisconsin, offers a dual-credit program for high-school age students. Participants can enroll in 10 different online courses through Concordia University Wisconsin, meeting high-school requirements while also earning college credit. Students from MTM Project member schools receive a $50 discount per credit ($150 for a three-credit course). Plus, if a student chooses to attend Concordia University Wisconsin after high school graduation, s/he will receive 1/2 of all dual credit tuition paid as a first-year scholarship (up to $1,250).
