Education Outreach

UW W Education Outreach: Improving student achievement through enhanced educator expertise, knowledge, and increased organizational capacity

Education Outreach programming and resources at UW-W is intended to create a bridge between PK-12 educators and higher education for conversation, work, and collaboration for the benefit of student achievement.

The bridge is strongest when professional relationships are built through continuous conversation with a common purpose: preparing all students for college and career. While not all students may choose a four year institution such as UW-Whitewater, they all need educational opportunities beyond high school.

To build these bridges with and among the area school districts, UW-W Education Outreach is designed to grow in response to school district needs and issues.

Goals:

  1. Establish a transparent, easily accessible process for collaboration.
  2. Develop strategies, activities and projects that build capacity.
  3. Build on connections that are already established.
  4. Monitor program effectiveness.

Strategies:

  1. Meet with area district administrators twice a year for sharing session.
  2. District educators serve on the Outreach Council (sign up).
  3. Compile a comprehensive professional development calendar linked to professional organizations.
  4. Provide workshops, conferences, professional development courses, and communication networks to meet specific educational needs.
