CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- University of Northern Iowa's Continuing and Distance Education is accepting applications for its upcoming Professional Development for Teachers cohort degree program, beginning in the fall of 2013 and leading to a Master of Arts in Education degree.

This program is designed to fulfill the professional development needs for classroom teachers and other teaching professionals who wish to deepen their understanding of the teaching and learning process. Students will have a variety of opportunities to develop strategies for implementing innovative practices in the classroom and for thoughtful analysis of issues and problems facing teachers.

"This program is especially well-suited to busy teachers who are interested in a cohort-based master's program that challenges them to expand their expertise in a broad range of educational topics," says program coordinator Michelle Tichy.

This degree will be earned online. Coursework begins in the fall of 2013 using a cohort model in which a group of students moves together through a course sequence, with the degree to be awarded in the summer of 2015. To learn more about the program and how to apply, visit
