Institute 2017: Teaching Hard to Reach Adult Learners was held on May 23 to 26 and May 30 to June 2.  

Many have described Institute as the best professional development they have ever encountered as they experienced hands on workshops with presenters such as Jeff Goodman, Mary Ferrell, Laurie Weston and the ABSPD staff.  Coming to Institute means spending time networking with colleagues across the state while enjoying the beautiful Boone spring.    

We discussed the following questions and more:  What can we do about the students who attend regularly but never seem to make progress?  How can we help the large number of students with undiagnosed learning differences in our classes?  How can we help prison inmate students achieve success?  What do we do with our low-level literacy students in our ABE classes?

The workshop fee is $455.  One can also take Institute as a 3 hour graduate course for $767.53.  Participants must also pay their own lodging costs.  CLICK HERE to find a suggested list of hotels.
