NEW! Announcing 2024 LINCS Summer Teacher Training Institute

LINCS is pleased to announce a new opportunity for free professional development with the 2024 Summer Teacher Training Institute!

The Summer Teacher Training Institute is an opportunity for adult educators across the country to convene for an immersive virtual learning experience. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, our institute promises to elevate your teaching to new heights. The institute is comprised of three strands: (1) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), (2) Students—Helping Them Persist, and (3) Standards in Action (SIA) 2.0*. Interested participants can sign up for one or more of the strands. Each strand will conduct a series of synchronous virtual sessions from July through August. 

Participants of the STEM Strand (6 weeks) will deepen practitioner knowledge about science, technology, and math content and research-based instructional strategies for the adult education classroom. The Students—Helping Them Persist Strand (6 weeks) focuses on building and sharing strategies around student motivation and persistence. The SIA 2.0 Strand* (8 weeks) will help participants review curriculum for alignment to standards. All participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and resources, complete engaging tasks, and network with other adult education educators.
