Spring Registration has begun.
Welcome to the website for the Seminars for Endorsement of Science and Mathematics Educators (SESAME) Program at the University of Chicago. We offer courses for professional development in mathematics and science. These courses can be used for obtaining State of Illinois Endorsements in the Teaching of Mathematics or Science in the Middle Grades. In addition, SESAME courses can be used for Chicago Public Schools Lane Credit and State Recertification.
All teachers are welcome to join our program at the start of any of our four yearly sessions: Autumn, Winter, Spring, or Summer. The academic year sessions (Autumn, Winter, Spring) take place on Wednesday evenings. During the summer, we offer a two-week program during the first half of August that includes both a morning and an afternoon session. Teachers may take one course during each session, and up to five each year. Each course consists of ten three-hour class sessions.
If you are interested in enrolling in the SESAME Program, please contact the SESAME Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
