WMELS (3-Week Online Noncredit Workshop)

The Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards (WMELS) Workshop is designed to help early childhood teachers, care providers, administrators and families use WMELS as a guide for providing quality early care and education for young children throughout the state of Wisconsin. The activities, handouts, resources and materials contained in the workshop provide a comprehensive overview of WMELS and guide participants with integrating the standards within the curricular framework of their classrooms and programs.

These classes are asynchronous – meaning they do not occur at the same time. Participants will have a significant amount of interaction with the instructor and other students in online discussion forums. Participants do NOT need to be online at the same time as other participants and do NOT need a webcam for these classes.
