2020 Instructional Conversation Institutes

2020 Instructional Conversation Institutes
**Due to the unfolding COVID-19 situation as well as the resulting social distancing, we recognize that we will not be able to share in face-to-face Institutes in summer or fall 2020. We are, however, excited about our plans to provide this training virtually!

To answer some of the basic questions you may have:
  • The dates and times will remain the same for the virtual Institutes (i.e. 4 days, 9:00am-5:00pm)
  • We will employ a virtual format rather than a face-to-face format
  • We will work with each district individually to develop a plan for ensuring your participants receive their course materials and information about how to transition to the online format prior to each Institute.

Overview of Institute: Join the Center for Latino Achievement and Success in Education (CLASE) for 30 hours of professional development on the Instructional Conversation Pedagogy and its application. Learn how integrating the listening and speaking standards into facilitated, conversation-based lessons can better prepare all of your students, particularly culturally and linguistically diverse students, for the Georgia Milestones.

The cost is $800 per person including all materials, instruction, etc.

Refund Policy: No refunds for cancellation. Substitutions are permitted up to 24 hours in advanced. Even if payment is collected at a later date (i.e. via purchase order or check), completion of registration serves as confirmation of your attendance. Payment will still be collected if you choose to cancel before it is processed.

All Summer 2020 Institute dates are closed or full. We are pleased to announce our October Virtual Institute is now OPEN!
