Learners Edge announces the addition of a new academic partner expanding the reach of continuing education courses for teachers throughout the state of Iowa and surrounding areas. While Learners Edge courses have been used by thousands of teachers throughout Iowa over the past decade, the partnership with a reputable college like Simpson College will ultimately improve the quality of teaching and learning in Iowa.
Simpson College will offer 17 continuing education courses for PreK-12 educators addressing many of today’s educational needs including courses on ADHD, Literacy, Autism, and Bullying. Courses are self-paced and able to be done without having to step foot on a college campus providing the flexibility that busy teachers need as they dedicate their time and energy to their classrooms.
“Education changes so quickly,” said Joe Cotter, President and CEO of Learners Edge, “We have a team of former teachers and administrators constantly developing rigorous, applicable courses that are geared towards helping teachers stay in tune with the needs of today’s children.” Cotter continues, “Our new partnership with Simpson College will help deliver that applicable learning to even more education professionals.”
Simpson College is well known for its Undergraduate Teacher Education program and also offers a Masters of Arts in Teaching and Transition to Teaching program. Adding a wide-range of Professional Development courses for teachers will allow Simpson to meet the needs of new and experienced educators looking to expand their knowledge base.
