Professional Modularized Teacher Education (Pro-Mo-TEd)
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 and student teaching. Students complete the Professional Education course sequence within 18 months using a blended instructional design that includes intensive direct instruction, online education and project-based learning.
The program is run in cohorts which begins in the Summer semester with a weekend, face-to-face and online format. The program continues in the Fall and Spring terms with course work offered in an online format and pre-teaching field experiences in the current place of employment. Students then return to campus for another Summer session for additional face-to-face and online course work.
Once students have completed all other requirements for graduation they will then enroll in their directed teaching experience along with a seminar to complete their degree requirements.

Is online learning right for me?
While there is flexibility in learning online, it demands a disciplined approach. Instructors approach class differently, most require that you participate in some online interaction weekly. Assignments are given and received online. Students are responsible for much more of their own learning with guidance from the instructor. Having good computer skills and equipment as well as excellent time management are a must for success.
