TEACH Butler is Expanding!


So many great educators have come to Butler’s campus each July for a week (and sometimes two) to gain professional development in a variety of areas, often with colleagues.  Many educators say that TEACH Butler is their time to think and get rejuvenated for the coming school year.  We are excited to expand the TEACH Butler program as we re imagine what professional development at Butler’s College of Education will look like in the future.

The College of Education has always offered workshops for graduate credit as a vehicle for professional development in addition to the TEACH Butler program.  We are expanding the idea of what workshops can look like on our campus and in our college.  Starting today, workshops are now a part of the TEACH Butler program.  We see TEACH Butler as an umbrella for all of the different ways we plan to deliver professional development to teachers, school counselors, administrators, graduate students and pre-service educators.  The TEACH Butler program will continue to grow and evolve, but we are so excited to align all of our professional development as the TEACH Butler brand!
