The Utah State Office of Education has authorized the Teacher Education Department at Weber State University to offer a six day master’s level re-licensure course. The course is MEDUC 6920; “Current Issues, Topics and Practices in Education.” It will provide participants 100, 150 or 200 licensure points.
The course will be offered offerings Monday, April 23 through Saturday April 28, 2012. Class will start at 7:30 am with a continental breakfast on Monday and will be completed by 3:30 each day. Enrollment will be capped at 25 participants. The course will be taught in Room 15 of the McKay Education Building on the Ogden Campus. Please note that this is a graded, for-credit course.

Please review all of the information provide in the links at the left. There you will find the schedule of sessions, syllabi, directions for parking, and materials you need to bring with you on the first day of class. You need to obtain a parking pass for the A2 lot for the week from parking services. You may pay by the day or the whole week. It is strongly suggested that you purchase your parking pass prior to the day class begins. Again, please review the links at the left for all information regarding our week together.

The remaining three days will be broken into six sessions. Attendance at these sessions will be determined by the number of licensure points needed up to 200.
