Apply now for PBTLA

With the last WIOA transition year upon us in 2016-2017, RIDE seeks to further build capacity in the Rhode Island Adult Education system for instructional leadership and proficiency-based teaching, learning and assessment (PBTLA) in readiness for full WIOA implementation with the PDC’s and Center for Collaborative Education (CCE)’s support.

To do this, we are making two different and distinct professional development opportunities available to RI adult education practitioners employed with RIDE-funded programs:

PD Opportunity A: PBTLA-related Micro-Credential Stacks

This is a year-long initiative hybrid course running June 2016-May 2017.

PD Opportunity B: Quality Performance Assessment (QPA)

This is a summer institute of 4 days running July 18-21, 2016.

Professional Development Partner – Center for Collaborative Education (CCE)

Both PD opportunities are organized and presented by the expert team of the Center for Collaborative Education (CCE) (www.cce.org) with whom RIDE PreK-12 has partnered for three years, and RI Adult Education is completing its first year.
