The flexibility of the curriculum allowed me to focus efforts in the directions my students’ needs demanded. I had support and feedback on every idea and it gave me the motivation to start a huge video work project for the courses I teach. I would highly recommend courses through USD.

I love the continuing education classes at USD because unlike classes I’ve taken at other universities, I feel like the material is really applicable and I’m actually learning something. The courses push my learning without being too challenging/time consuming to complete while working full time. The professors also really seem interested in your growth rather than just checking off that you completed the requirements.

The courses offered at USD have been valuable in my teaching career! I have implemented engaging and differentiation strategies to reach the needs of my students. Thank you!
