What: LINCS 2024 Summer Teacher Training Institute

Description: The Summer Teacher Training Institute (STTI) is a new opportunity for adult education teachers across the country to convene for an immersive virtual evidence-based professional learning experience. Whether a seasoned pro or just beginning, the STTI promises to elevate teaching to new heights. The STTI is comprised of three strands:

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (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) will deepen practitioner knowledge about holistic student supports while focusing on building and sharing strategies around student motivation and persistence.

The SIA 2.0 Strand* (8 weeks) will deepen practitioner knowledge and help participants review curriculum for alignment to standards while allowing for peer exchange of ideas and resources and networking with other adult education teachers.
