Program Description:

Our inservice programs model professional standards, innovative curricula, and best practices for early childhood, elementary, middle, and high school teachers who want to advance their study. At Lewis & Clark, we invest in expertise and foster deep engagement. Our faculty members use the same approach we encourage our students to adopt: teaching through collaboration; by observing, describing, and learning from student behavior; with respect for diversity; and as advocates for student and community success. Weekend and evening classes accommodate the schedules of working teachers, and we’ll even bring our programs to you—"district affiliated" programs for experienced teachers are offered at various sites around Oregon.
