The Kellogg Institute for the Certification of Adult and Developmental Educators is the nation's longest running professional development program for developmental educators and learning skills specialists.
The program consists of two components:
- an intensive, four-week summer residence
- a supervised practicum following the residency and carried out at the participant's home campus
The residency portion of the Institute includes four seminars on such topics as Assessment and Placement; Strategies to Accelerate Learning; Integrating Support Services, Instruction; and Technology; and Outcomes Assessment and Program Evaluation. Each seminar is led by one or more recognized experts in the content area and is designed to meet the needs of the practicing developmental educator and learning assistance specialist.
Who should attend the Kellogg Institute?
The Institute is not designed as an introduction to the field of developmental education. Instead, it is intended as an advanced professional development program to assist practitioners in expanding their knowledge of the field and improving their own developmental or learning assistance program. Participants should have at least one year's practice in developmental education or a related field. Enrollment will be limited to 45 participants selected from among qualified applicants on a first-come, first-serve basis. Institutional balance may be considered in selecting participants. Participants should be committed to completing certification requirements.
In order to be certified, participants must satisfactorily fulfill the residency requirements and complete the practicum project within one academic year.
Detailed seminar descriptions may be revised and updated. For examples of the topics and content areas, please see seminar descriptions.
