COURSE APPLICATION

To submit a course for consideration by the Professional Development Committee, you must first be an approved Partners in Education instructor (see above).

Before submitting a course application, review the following documents:

All class materials, including the presentation (for example, a PowerPoint presentation), and the handout must be included in your application. For the handout, please keep in mind that the Class Sponsor makes a copy for each student. Therefore, please try to keep the number of pages in the handout to a minimum. We prefer not to use your presentation as a handout. If you want students to have a copy of your presentation, they may request it from you via email (or any other method you prefer) after the class. 

In your course application, you may also upload a short, course-specific video link. If the course is approved, the video link will be a part of your course description in our online course catalog.
