Credit and Non-credit Workshop Opportunities
The Office of Continuing and Distance Education offers credit and noncredit workshops and conferences designed to help you stay ahead of the curve in your career development. Professionals in all types of fields attend our programs to learn the latest trends, maintain credentials and get the hands-on training necessary for furthering their careers. Continuing and Distance Education Workshops are credit or noncredit activities that focus on professional tasks. They are characterized by cutting-edge topics, innovative formats and unconventional scheduling. They are also characterized by flexible schedules, including weekends, evenings and over university breaks. In addition to Kent State campuses, the Office of Continuing and Distance Education offers workshops on-site at businesses, schools, hospitals, libraries or other settings.
Participants who successfully complete credit-bearing workshops earn graduate-level university credits (usually one, two or three, depending on the workshop). Grading is on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis. Although noncredit workshops do not offer university credit, they may provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) that are required in some professions.

Sports Reference: Sources for Sports Information
Students will gain insight into the breadth of the topic of sports and society as well as awareness of potential sources they can use to assist patrons. People who study an aspect of sports, or who simply are interested as fans or participants, will have opportunity to acquire new information tools with which to broaden their understanding of sports. By the end of the workshop, students should be able to understand the structure of sports information sources, both print and electronic, and answer a wide variety of sports-related reference questions.
