Advancement Courses Announces Partnership With Augustana University to Offer Graduate Credit for K–12 Educators
Advancement Courses (AC), a Wiley brand and leader in K–12 professional development, today announced a new partnership with Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to offer graduate credit for K–12 educators. This partnership allows teachers to advance their professional skills and careers with courses specific to their grade level, content area, and topic of interest. Teachers will also have the opportunity to apply their graduate-level continuing education work with AC to Augustana’s Master of Education (M.Ed.) degrees.
“We are excited to partner with Augustana University to create accessible, affordable pathways to Augustana’s graduate programs through a comprehensive catalog of graduate courses and certificates that increase educators’ competence and expertise,” said Brad Clark, Senior Director and General Manager of Advancement Courses. “Our team at Advancement Courses looks forward to collaborating with Augustana and their P–12 partners to enhance classroom outcomes, expand instructional skills, and increase teacher confidence through meaningful, credit-bearing professional development.”
“Augustana is excited to offer teachers access to high-quality professional development courses and certificates for teachers through this new partnership,” said Laurie Daily, Dean of Education and Director for Graduate and Continuing Education at Augustana. “The courses are on timely topics in education, and offer teachers the flexibility that they both desire and need.”
AC offers a vast breadth of graduate and continuing education credit content to help teachers renew their licenses, advance on their district’s salary scale, and sharpen their pedagogical skills. Through this partnership, educators will receive graduate credit from Augustana for their AC coursework, as well as apply the time they devote to professional development to an accredited degree from Augustana.
