***The SMSU Credentialling Institutes scheduled for Brainerd in May and Apply Valley in June will still take place during the same time frames, but will now be online/hybrid classes.  The classes will still run 8 - 5 for the full 5 days of Monday-Friday, just as the face-to-face Institutes were scheduled.   The format is changed.  You will be in your office or at home attending online through Zoom and D2L.  Instructors will present information/concepts, then the classes will be involved with active learning and groups, reporting back after working separately or together.  Both D2L and ZOOM will be used to help us present these classes in the most active, engaging manner possible.  All students enrolled will receive instructions and additional information through D2L a week prior to classes starting so we can all feel comfortable with this change of formats.   We will open the D2L site for classes early so you can access the information. ***

Dr. Linehan will be happy to answer any questions - 507-420-0620.
