Educator in the Workplace

The Educator in the Workplace program connects teachers with the business community. The course provides educators the opportunity to develop an awareness and understanding of integrating the business and education communities, explore and develop innovative instruction practices, and provide relevance while building a capacity to enhance student achievement.

Through a mix of classroom learning activities and on-site learning in a workplace environment, educators enrolled in this course can expect to bring relevant work standards and experiences back to their classrooms. To read some testimonials from the course's graduates, scroll down.

This program is offered both as a non-credit (Act 48)** and for-credit course through our post-secondary partner, Shippensburg University. Educators spend three days in the classroom and three days working at a preselected business.
