Institute 2014: Accelerating Learning in Writing took place from May 25 through May 30 and June 1 through 6, 2014.  We had two incredible weeks of writing instruction that helped instructors teach students from beginning writers to those preparing for high school equivalency tests, adult high school diplomas, postsecondary education, and for life. 

Beginning in 2014, participants who wish to earn the Certified Resource Specialist (CRS) designation must take Institute for graduate credit.  (Those who began the process of earning their CRS prior to 2014 are grandfathered in and will not have to meet this requirement.)  One who earns the Certified Resource Specialist designation has attended three Institutes and completed two practicum projects.  They are recognized professional development leaders within their local programs and serve as a resource for guiding teaching and learning as well as for improving instructional quality.
