Professional Institute for Educators at GoggleWorks
Note: due to the corona virus pandemic, 2020 PIE Summer offerings have been suspended. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is pleased to partner with The University of the Arts (UArts) to offer Professional Institute for Educators (PIE) at our downtown Reading, PA campus. PIE at UArts empowers educators across disciplines to continually advance their teaching skills to improve learning for all students. Through graduate courses and two Master’s programs in Educational Program Design and Educational Technology, PIE develops innovative and creative educational programming to serve the professional development needs of K-12 teachers in, and through, the arts.
PA Act 48 / NJ Professional Development
All courses in the PIE program meet University standards and go through a faculty review process. UArts is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, NASAD, and NASM. PIE at UArts is an approved provider for PA Act 48 and NJ Professional Development; participants are required to relate course content to their classrooms, which may include lesson plans, critiques, papers, and other projects. Courses in the PIE program are offered for credit only and tuition varies per term.
