Trine offering discounted graduate courses to AFT Indiana members

January 12, 2022

AFT Indiana, a state union for teachers, has partnered with Trine University and Virtual Education Software, inc. to offer its members a yearly subscription to online graduate courses.

For $225 per year, a savings of more than $1,000 per year, AFT members can enroll in up to three courses per year, taking either one per term or two in the summer and one in the fall or spring.

Educators can choose from seven graduate certificate programs: Early Childhood Education, Trauma-Informed Instruction (P-12), English Language Arts Instruction, Classroom Behavior and Management, Instructional Design, Special Education: Mild Interventions and English Language Learners (K-12). More than 30 courses cover areas such as assessment, classroom management, diversity and inclusion, and violence and bullying.

Coursework, which can be completed online at a teacher’s own pace and in the convenience of their home, counts toward license renewal and salary advancement.

“We are pleased to partner with AFT Indiana and offer members this opportunity to enhance their professional knowledge and skills at an affordable rate,” said Tony Kline, Ph.D., dean of the Franks School of Education. “We are continually grateful for the dedication and expertise of educators who strive daily to make a difference in the lives of K-12 students across the state. This partnership is another way we can support the great work of our Hoosier teachers.”
