(b) Don’t do it alone: SE Minnesota Regional Model for IETs Presenters: Jill Rivard, Hiawatha Valley/Red Wing ABE and Penny Jahnke, SE ABE
How many of you have thought : “I can’t do IET because my program is too small, I don’t have the time, I can’t afford it, I don’t know where to start, I can’t do the SSLO’s.” We were there too. We decided we were stronger together. Please join us In this webinar we will discuss the history of regional IET, steps to create a regional model, challenges and successes, as well as how to share contact hours.

3:25-4:15 pm – SESSION 3: IETs by Region: Let’s Talk! – Presenter: Patsy Egan, ATLAS and Heather Turngren, Minneapolis ABE
As we close this first IET Institute for Minnesota Adult Education, we’ve set aside time for regions to come together. The work of IET doesn’t happen easily nor in isolation; it requires hearty collaboration. Most of this session will be in a breakout room discussion led by your Regional Transitions Coordinator. This is the perfect time to learn/share about regional plans, connect with others doing similar work in your geographic area, and identify next steps. As a full group, we’ll end with some key announcements and reflections from ATLAS and MDE.
