Pro-Mo-TEd Program

Professional Modularized Teacher Education (Pro-Mo-TEd)

Program overview

Pro-Mo-TEd is a program designed to offer working students a unique opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Education degree in Technical Education and a Standard Teaching Certificate with CIP endorsement.  The program offers blended instruction in an online delivery format for 18 months.  

The program is unique because it is offered in a cohort format that creates a friendly, student-centered, supportive environment.  Course begin in the Summer semester and continues in the Fall, Spring and Summer terms.  The final Fall semester is the student teaching semester (as long as all other program requirements are complete).

Is online learning right for me?

While there is flexibility in learning online, it demands a disciplined approach. Each instructor approaches class differently based on the course content, although most require that you participate in weekly discussions and assignments.  Good time management, computer skills, and equipment are necessary for success.
