Lehigh provides, without charge, high quality professional support for teachers in the field. While Lehigh, as a private institution, cannot provide free support to all teachers in the area, it does provide such ongoing support for its own graduates and for teachers and professional staff at its local integrated professional development (IPDS) partner schools.
Our post-graduation professional support for teacher graduates has four components: (1) online resources, (2) face-to-face annual sessions, (3) professional advancement credits and (4) email support and follow up surveys.
Please explore our website to learn more about each opportunity.
The College of Education Distinguished Lecture Series: Leaders of Practice
In classrooms across the nation, educators are challenged each day to situate learning within the larger context of daily life. Our annual Distinguished Lecture Series events have, over the past decade, provided educators, alumni, and the public with the latest in research and practice across a wide variety of topics. Lehigh College of Education faculty and leading educational experts have presented their work in topics such as "Issues in Urban Education", "Best Practices for Students with Significant Learning Problems", "Cutting-Edge Programs and Practices for Students with Severe Emotional and Behavioral Needs", and "Best Practices within the STEM Areas". Visit our lecture page for more information.
Our Education and Human Services department hosts a total of four colloquia during the academic year; two in the fall and two in the spring, each focusing on one of the seven discipline areas of the college.
