Don't Wait! Summer Institute 2017 Poster Sessions Needed - By Rob Podlasek, Training Manager

Heading to Summer Institute in August? Looking for a way to make the conference a success for you and your colleagues? Share your program innovation, new teaching routine, exciting classroom activity, etc. at a poster session!

Poster Sessions don’t have to be fancy. Just make a poster highlighting your great idea. Then create a handout that people can take with them. During the poster session (1:15-2:00 pm on Thursday, August 17), stand by your poster, meet with your peers and answer questions. It’s like a science fair for ABE teachers!

Need some additional motivation? Two lucky (and randomly-drawn) poster session presenters will receive $25 Amazon gift cards.

Looking for ideas? Here are some of the topics already lined up:

  • Introduction to Evidence
  • ABE and Out of School Youth: A Growing Partnership
  • Using Webquests to engage students in learning
  • Journeys Curriculum: a new teaching resource
  • Adult Career Pathways Curriculum Resource Library
