What better way to start off the New Year than with professional development? The California Adult Literacy Professional Development Project (CALPRO) offers free professional development courses you can take any time, any place, through the Internet. To get started, all you need is an e-mail account, Internet access, and an average of three hours per week scheduled according to your convenience.

Through these asynchronous classes, you can exchange ideas with fellow educators and get feedback from a subject-expert facilitator. You also have the opportunity to meet, on two occasions, in real time. Participants who complete a course successfully earn certificates of course completion (14 hours); graduates may also register for Continuing Education Units (CEUs), if they wish.

Registration is now open for three courses that begin in January, including the first of two exciting new courses on Postsecondary Transitions.

  • Designing Programs for Adults with Learning Disabilities, Session 1:
    Awareness for Adult Educators
  • Integrated and Contextualized Workforce Skills in the ESL Classroom
  • Postsecondary Transitions, Session 1:
    Getting Started: Key Components, Strategies, and Best Practices (New!)

In the Postsecondary Transitions courses, agency teams of an administrator, a lead teacher, and a student support services staff member register and work together throughout the course. In all other courses, any eligible adult educator may sign up as an individual.

Enrollment in these January courses is on a first-registered, first-served basis, so sign up today! CALPRO events are open to all adult educators currently working in programs funded through the California Department of Education, Adult Education Office.

For registration and additional information, visit CALPRO's Event Calendar or the statewide training calendar of the state Leadership Projects.
