TechEd Frontiers offerings reflect UWM’s depth and breadth as a research university, while featuring our strong business connections. UWM is an innovator in online learning, having the most online classes in the UW System (850+) and 30 fully online degree and certificate programs long before the emergence of COVID-19.
Our status as a R1 research university generates new knowledge that is future focused and not yet in textbooks or part of a standard curriculum offered by teaching universities.
Our faculty is experienced curriculum design and learning science, and our accreditation allows us to provide pathway to credit so students can reach their education goals by combining prior learning with new learning into stackable certificates that can lead to degrees.
TechEd Frontiers will design learning modules and create pathways that will not only close skill gaps but be affordable on-ramps to traditional college programs or off-ramps to employment and/or career advancement. The approach is unique compared to current non-credit and continuing education initiatives at UWM and offers a chance to showcase the expertise at UWM and our ability to collaborate across its different schools and colleges.
