Foundations of Correctional Education

Spring Semester 2018, Online

UW-Stout is proud to announce a new course being offered for the first time this Spring. Foundations of Correctional Education has been specifically created by a correctional educator for correctional educators. It will focus on the unique setting of correctional education and how to minimize its negative impact on correctional educators as well as exploring the history of correctional education, its current issues and future trends.
Foundations of Correctional Education (CTE-396/596) is a dual enrollment online course that starts on January 22, 2018. The credits can count towards a Bachelors or Masters in Career and Technical Education. You can also take it as a stand-alone course as a non-degree seeking student.
This course is being offered in direct response to recent research recommendations and specific customer demands. According to research conducted by Dr. Laura Reisinger, “Not only is there a lack of training available to and designed for correctional educators, but also a lack of direct involvement in planning such training.” Coupled with her 13 years of teaching in county jails and her specific research findings, Laura is uniquely positioned to not only develop this course but also teach it.
Subsequently, Dr. Matt Simoneau was emailed by Mandy Johnson, (Education Director – FQAS, Office of Student Success, Wisconsin Technical College System) on behalf of Margaret Carpenter (Department of Corrections Education Director). It stated: “UW-Platteville & UW-Stout are the main college partners WTCS faculty work with to obtain undergrad/graduate degrees. Both of these colleges have reviewed and approved the WTCS FQAS Competency courses provided through WTCS. Both are open to working with WTCS faculty and Department of Corrections faculty to enroll them in programs at their colleges and provide transcripted credit for the competency courses taken through the System Office. Both colleges have great contacts available to discuss details with you and the DOC to create an efficient and successful process for DOC instructors moving forward.”
