Online Professional Development Courses from CALPRO

Posted on 02/21/2012


The California Adult Literacy Professional Development Project (CALPRO [www]) is offering six facilitated, online courses that begin between March and May 2012. Here are four courses that address issues in teaching and program design:

  • Designing Programs for Adults with Learning Disabilities, Session 2: Effective Instructional Strategies (starts 3/1; requires Session 1)
  • Optimizing ESL Instructional Planning: Management, Monitoring, and Reflection (starts 3/1)
  • Using Questioning Strategies to Improve Instruction, Session 1 (starts 4/12)
  • Managing the ESL Multilevel Class (starts 4/16)

Also, registration is now open for two exciting new courses on Postsecondary Transitions, a top priority topic of the US and CA offices of adult education:

  • Postsecondary Transitions, Session 1: Getting Started: Key Components, Strategies and Best Practices (starts 4/4)
  • Postsecondary Transitions, Session 2: From Theory to Practice: Next Steps and Action Plans (starts 5/3; requires Session 1)

Note: unlike other CALPRO online courses, the Postsecondary Transitions series is designed for agency teams. Each agency team must contain one administrator, one lead teacher, and one student support staff member; each team member must register for and complete the course together.

All adult literacy providers currently working in programs funded though the California Department of Education, Adult Education Office (including WIA, Title II federal funds), are eligible to enroll free of charge and earn credit.

Registration is open, and enrollment is limited and on a first-registered, first-served basis. To register for these courses, visit the statewide professional development calendar at http://www.caadultedtraining.org [www].
