Professional Development for Teachers

Professional Development Opportunities

At Cleveland State University, our goal is to provide teachers with readily available, high-quality professional development courses and lifelong learning opportunites. In a rapidly changing world educators must stay on top of new teaching methods and cutting edge educational concepts and tools.

Seminars and workshops are popular ways for teachers to continute to develop professionally. 


In Ohio teachers must obtain 180 contact hours of professional development every 5 years. Permission must be granted before teachers take online professional development from their Local Professional Development Coordinator (LPDC). Teachers not employed with a school district must complete for credit course work through a college or university. Please check with the Ohio Department of Educaiton for additional details. 

Cleveland State University does not have any current programming for Teacher Education contact hours. Please consider our for credit courses and check back at this page for future non-credit professional development programming.
