Continuing Education Workshops

The Office of Continuing and Distance Education offers credit and non-credit 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 non-credit 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.

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 non-credit workshops do not offer university credit, they may provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) that are required in some professions.

The Office of Continuing and Distance Education offers a variety of workshops in education, library science, art education, and other areas. Credit workshops, like for-credit continuing education courses, meet university and Ohio Board of Regents standards for contact hours and out-of-class time and adhere to the cost per credit hour set by the University Board of Trustees. Participants in credit workshops are evaluated according to the instructor's clearly detailed criteria. Those who successfully complete credit-bearing workshops will be granted university credits. Non-credit workshops are not part of the University fee structure.

Please note: Tuition and distance learning fee is current at the time of publishing.
