Professional Development

Eureka College is proud to work with our community partners to bring professional development to working adults that draws from the best of what theory and research have to offer and applies it directly to the world in which you live.

Leadership and Communication Workshop Series

The Leadership and Communication Workshop Series is designed specifically to give those with a strong background in the trades the skills that they need in the field to be effective leaders.  This series consists of four components:

  • Leaders and Followers
  • Problem Solving
  • Motivation and Teams
  • Conflict Management
  • Understand your leadership style and the styles of others
  • Discover strategies that enable you to identify and solve problems
  • Learn techniques that will help motivate yourself and others to accomplish excellent job performance
  • Generate ideas for negotiating conflict quickly and serving as a liaison between parties

Special Education LBSI Endorsement (for Practicing Teachers)

The Special Education LBSI Endorsement program is designed with the practicing teacher in mind.  Those with a valid Illinois teaching license are eligible to participate in this program, which will result in adding an LBSI Endorsement for the age and grade levels for which they are already licensed.  For example, a teacher who is currently endorsed for grades 6-12 would earn an LBSI Endorsement for that same grade range, whereas a teacher with a license endorsed for grades K-12 would have an LBSI Endorsement valid for K-12.
