Which is better UCLA or UNM Continuing Education?

I am planning to start continuing education for teachers. However, I am in a dilemma. I do not know whether to choose UNM continuing education or UCLA continuing education. I am interested in UCLA because it is a very popular school and is known for offering the best quality of education. On the other hand, UNM has been highly recommended by my friends and relatives who have taken their courses at this institution. Now I do not know which of the two schools to choose. Which one should I choose and why?

UCLA and UNM are great schools if you are considering furthering your education. Both schools offer top notch training and you can be assured that you will leave the school as an expert in your field. However, when it comes to choosing between these two schools your choice should be dependent on what you are looking for. Although both schools are great, they have different teaching approaches and they will both offer you totally different experiences.

The first thing you need to do to decide is to determine whether or not these schools offer teachers’ continuing education. UCLA continuous education has a number of courses for teachers who want to learn new skills to further their education and improve their teaching career. There are courses for early childhood development, multi-ethnic environments, issues facing K-12 schools and higher education and equity among others. On the other hand, UNM continuous education only offers a number of online resources for teachers that will help you learn new skills. There are no one-on-one lessons where you get to interact with an instructor. You can do everything on your own online. Therefore, to make this decision, you need to know exactly what you are looking for before you make a decision.

The other thing that will help you make a decision is the schedule. Do you want to attend full-time or part-time classes? Would you rather go on-campus or do online learning? These are very important questions to ask yourself. UCLA provides the option of both online and on-campus learning with very flexible schedules. You can choose between attending classes in the evening or on the weekends when you do not have to work. On the other hand, UNM only has online resources for teachers.

In my opinion, it is better to choose UCLA. This is because they offer a good number of courses for teachers which might be very important for your professional advancement. The other reason why you should choose this school is that you have a variety of choices on how to attend your class. You can try out the on-campus and change it for online classes if it doesn’t work out. UCLA is also an excellent option because you get to be taught by experts and interact with other people in your profession. This is very important because it will enable you to network and make great relationships that you might need in your career especially when you need to take up a new job.

I am used to the UNM Continuing Education since I have taken several courses in the institution for several years. Majority of these schools are from the digital art department, which ensures that the qualities of these classes are excellent. The instructors in each related subjects are highly equipped with great knowledge and always ready to help and offer advice to students. It has an opportunity for ongoing education for teachers thus provides a chance for inquiring any questions about  UCLA continuous education.

I also think UCLA continuing education is the best option. I say this because this school has very good reviews not only for the continuing education lessons but also for the traditional classes. You need to go to a school which you know a lot about and has a proven success record.  You should also choose this university because it is a large university with so many resources you can utilize during your program. For instance, you can take advantage of the computer labs and libraries to do research. UCLA would also be a great choice because you will get the opportunity to interact with a diverse community. People from different parts of the world attend this university. This will give you a chance to interact with people of different cultures which might be great for you in case you ever want to teach in a different country.
