ABE Foundations at-a-Distance: Fall Webinar Series!Patsy Egan, ATLAS Director
This fall, given the inability to hold the in-person ABE Foundations Workshop at Summer Institute, the online course is a great option for those new to ABE! However, it’s a lot of information, and we recognize that having the in-person workshop allows you to ask questions, meet key leaders in the field, and build relationships with other colleagues new to ABE.
So, to add to the online course experience, we are offering a 3-webinar series to support your entry into the field – on October 18, October 25, and November 1, 2021. Come to one, two, or all of them as your schedule allows!
What’s the purpose of the webinar series?
- To complement the ABE Foundations online course.
- To provide a guided, connected way to complete the ABE Foundations online course content in a short, defined timeframe with colleagues.
- To provide space for asking questions, sharing successes and challenges related to our current work.
- To meet and network, and form relationships with ABE leaders and fellow practitioners in the state.
Can I get CEUs?
Of course! There are 12 CEUs possible: 6 for the online course, 4.5 for webinars (1.5 given out after each one), plus additional 1.5 for between webinar work for those who complete all 3 webinars.
How will this work?
To complete the online course in a supported way, this series of 3 webinars complements simultaneous participation in ABE Foundations Online Course according to the following timeline. Note that an optional 4th webinar specific to support staff personnel is being planned for the Support Staff Conference in mid-November, too!
