YEAR ROUND ONLINE COURSES

UtSTA now offers online endorsement courses to better meet the needs of Utah educators who are pursuing science endorsements. These online Content and Classroom Teaching Courses are developed by Utah teachers and community experts to support teaching the Utah Core Standards; building deep content knowledge in science to support instruction; and effective teaching strategies that are best practice to help support student success in college and career. The classes use rubrics that align with the vision for science education articulated in our core standards, as well as the Literacy for Science standards articulated in the English Language Arts core documents.

  • All UtSTA  online science endorsement courses will count towards Utah State Board of Education Endorsement Requirements. Each UtSTA  online course description lists the endorsement course requirements that it fulfills. After successful completion of the course participants will receive 3.0 Southern Utah University Credits post to an SUU Transcript.
  • This 12 week course is only done over the set 12 week period.  Participants are not able to "move at your own pace" but work within the module assigned for that week.   Modules cannot be unlocked ahead of the scheduled time.
  • Cost for courses is $500. Talk with your district about the USBE Endorsement Course Reimbursement program to see if you qualify to be reimbursed.

In Person Courses

UtSTA offers in person classes with instructors for endorsement courses during summer and through out the year, in partnership with BYU, UVU, and SUU.  All courses are taught by highly qualified instructors and many have experience in K-12 classrooms like yours. The classes are designed to be hands-on and inquiry based so the teachers can learn the lessons/techniques and take them back to the classroom.  The courses are being developed and will be released soon.

  • All UtSTA summer courses count towards Utah State Board of Education Endorsement Requirements
  • Cost for these courses are possibly reimbursed through your LEA. This covers the price of the instructor, class location, supplies, food (lunch and snacks), and university credit recording fees. Click here to see if you are eligible for course reimbursement from your district. 
  • Participants are responsible for all travel and meals. Astronomy and Geology and other course with field work may have extra cost for housing and meals depending on location. 
  • The registration cost includes University Tuition. There is no requirement that participants are a matriculated student at the university to earn credit.
