Abstract

The rural, in-service teacher is often confronted with many barriers when trying to obtain an advanced degree or additional certification. Geography, time, professional obligations and familial responsibilities are often barriers that hinder the continuing education of teachers today. Marshall University's Graduate School of Education and Professional Development has developed a cohort delivery model that takes degree programs to the teachers. This paper describes the model for delivery that has been developed over the past four years.
