The Office of Distance and Extended Learning provides support services to Texas State faculty / staff / departments to conduct non-credit courses, host conferences, workshops or seminars to meet the continuing education, or professional development needs of their students or alumni. We also work with faculty and staff to host conferences for professional associations to which they belong. Our experienced staff can help you conduct a well-coordinated, successful event.
When it comes to offering a course or hosting an event, your biggest concern ought to be the subject at hand – not how to reserve off-campus facilities, how you’re going to collect payments and get everyone registered, or how to seek approval for continuing education units.
Texas State faculty interested in conducting continuing education and/or professional development courses are encouraged to contact the Office of Distance and Extended Learning (ODEL) to discuss how we can work together. Please contact ODEL at 512-245-2507 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
