Professional Development Programs

Learn new skills and continue your education in the University of Michigan-Flint noncredit professional development programs.

The Office of Online & Digital Education (ODE) is approved to award continuing education credits by the following entities:

K-12 Professional Development

Earn SCECHs taking single courses or working toward one of three Technology Integrator Certificates. Courses were developed by UM-Flint staff.

Online Instructor Certificate

For educators and trainers at all levels, this is an intensive program that warrants the UM-Flint “seal of approval.”

EDT 521

Graduate students enrolled in EDT 521 will find a full set of mini-module registration instructions in their Blackboard course shells on the first day of the academic semester for which they are registered. These instructions will contain a coupon code that should be applied to each selection in order to zero out the balance due at checkout. Students should not incur any additional cost while registering for the mini-modules as they have already paid standard tuition and fees. 

Assistance with mini-module registration or Blackboard navigation is available through ODE. Students requiring guidance on mini-module selection should reach out to the appropriate program representative.
