UW-RF Graduate/Outreach Classes Available

Graduate or outreach classes are still open this spring semester at UW-River Falls for such non-traditional students as educators, business professionals or parents.

Courses may be applied toward an advanced degree or taken for personal or professional growth. Most courses begin the week of Jan. 26.

Biology teachers can register for Evolution for Teachers (BIOL 789) and expand their knowledge, skills and resources for teaching this complex and socially controversial subject. The online format of the course makes it available to anyone with a computer and access to the Internet.

Two courses offered this spring will improve educators' and parents' understanding about children with learning disabilities. In Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorders (COMD 389/589), participants will learn effective strategies to enhance communication, socialization and learning among children with this disability.

Another course, Introduction to Learning Disabilities (PSYC 620), will review the criteria for assessing students and the attributes of students struggling with learning in academic, social and behavioral areas. Both courses are offered on the UW-RF campus and at area high schools via interactive television.

Additional courses for small business owners, economists and nature tourism professionals and others are among the several professional development opportunities offered from Jan. 26 through May 14.

A list of courses and registration instructions are available on the Web at http://www.uwrf.edu/outreach or by calling 715/425-3256 or 800-228-5607.
