Instructions for How to Create Continuing Education Courses

How to Create an ED S593 Course

Are you an instructor looking to create an ED S593 Continuing Education course with UAS? You've come to the right place! 

All proposed course pedagogy should be geared towards continuing education for Alaska's teachers, and be taught in such a way that helps, assists, enriches, and instructs course curriculum content creation of Alaskan teachers. Please contact Nona Dimond at 907-796-6050 or email with any questions, or for more information. 

The following documentation will be required for all course proposals to be considered (only one type of Course Proposal Packet is required). E-signature is fine for all submissions: 

*Consistent with its accreditation, UAS may grant credit for a university-level course that is co-sponsored by various organizations with which UAS has an ongoing relationship. A “co-sponsored course” is one for which most or all of the costs of instruction are borne by some agency or organization other than the University, and the academic integrity of the course is ensured by the University. Entities interested in proposing a co-sponsored course should use this form as a requirements guide for approval of UAS co-sponsored courses.
