Fall 2020 Institute

                                                                       September 18, 19, 20, 2020

IMPORTANT CHANGE TO FALL CLASSES:  The plan to hold Fall Credentialing classes face-to-face has changed.  Due to an increase in Covid-19 spread, fall classes will be held in a hybrid manner using both D2L/Brightspace and Zoom.  All three classes will start online Monday, August 31 (sign in this day), and will be followed the next day with an evening informational meeting from 8:00-9:00 p.m. on Tuesday night.   The online portion will continue until the end of the semester and will be supplemented by some required in-class time (over Zoom) on the days and within the hours which were already planned for the F2F.  The zoom class sessions will enhance the online portion and include student presentations.  An email will be sent with more information closer to the semester starting.  If you register for any or all of these classes, please be on the lookout for an email in the next three weeks which will give you more details on scheduling.


All three courses are offered during the Fall Institute.  We encourage you to enroll for all three courses and take them all the same two weekends if you need all three.  We want you to have plenty of time to apply what you have learned inside your own classes. 

Here are the courses provided in each Fall Institute:

CRED 410 Instructional Strategies for Community and Tech Colleges (Undergraduate)
