Continuing Education Units

Lakeside Chautauqua has launched a pilot program to offer professional development graduate credit based on participation in educational and cultural arts programs at Lakeside each week this summer.

This opportunity is designed for educators needing to renew teaching licenses and/or gain professional development credit, which will be issued through Lake Erie College.

Course Description

Nine separate courses (one per week) will be offered, each providing one semester of graduate credit (pass/fail). Participants can register for one to nine credits. The cost is $180 per credit.

This course is designed to allow the educator to align their Lesson Planning with the Common Core Curriculum of either the Arts or Academics. Knowledge gained during each of these Chautauqua weeks will help educators become leaders in their school and community. This program is designed to help educators across the profession, curricula areas and areas of specialization. It is organized as a forum for a heterogeneous group of professionals.

Requirements for each course include attendance at lectures, educational programs and cultural events, as well as completion of event summaries/critiques and a one-page outside project. All assignments can be submitted online.


Register for graduate credit at the beginning of each week. After registering, course materials will be emailed with directions for completion. For questions, contact Professor Sally Schuler at or (440) 826-9736.
