Workshops, Conferences, Institutes, and Short Courses

Jim Knight

We offer workshops and multiple day institutes that delve into a specific topic that's especially relevant to teachers and administrators. Participants receive a paper certificate or electronic badge which can be stacked or linked together in a micro-credential system. The School of Education and Social Policy offers its own micro-credential platform. Illinois educators can apply these toward renewing their Professional Educator License.
