Description:
In Integrated Education and Training (IET), participants work in agency-based teams of educators and agency administrators through the process of developing plans for implementing one of four instructional models that successfully integrate adult education basic skills instruction (i.e., Adult Basic Education or English has a Second Language) with technical or occupational skills instruction. The four models are Co-teaching, Alternating Teaching, Vocational ESL/ABE-specific, and Cluster Vocational ESL/ABE.

This course takes place entirely online and runs for four consecutive weeks, from 03/27/2017 to 04/24/2017. Weekly participation is required, though participants may, during a given week, log in whenever they wish. A kick-off Webinar will take place in the first week, and the date will be announced and posted.

Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of participation (15 hours); they are also eligible to apply to CSUS for 1.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), if they wish.

Agencies must apply as a team consisting of an administrator and a team of two instructors representing two roles: 1) a basic skills (i.e. ABE, ESL) instructor and 2) a technical skills instructor.
