Parkside's Institute of Professional Educator Development (IPED) encompasses both Teacher Education and Professional Development. What this means to you is that our assistance begins when you decide "I want to be an educator" and continues through the lifespan of your career.
The Teacher Education program is focused on creating a regional 21st century learning community in southeastern Wisconsin for students who have the disposition and desire to teach in PK-12 classrooms. We are committed to providing "high quality academic programs rooted in the tradition of a liberal education in the arts, sciences and professions, responsive to the occupational, civic and cultural needs of the region, and actively seek the continued input of all stakeholders" (UW-Parkside Mission, 2010).
Through Advanced Professional Development, we draw on current research and collaborative partnerships to support the personal and professional growth of current PK-12 educators to promote effective teaching and learning.
