Instructor Annual Professional Development

The Boise State University Concurrent Enrollment program offers professional development opportunities for instructors to ensure an equivalent and quality classroom experience. Ongoing professional development opportunities enhance the overall quality of the Concurrent Enrollment program by providing a foundation for meaningful, continued learning and collegial interaction for instructors. Our academic departments collaboratively share the latest knowledge, best practices and updates in their academic discipline.

PD Support from Faculty Liaisons

Each academic department has a designated faculty member who serves as the liaison with the high school instructor, providing guidance for the curriculum to be aligned with the college course. The department serves as an academic resources and is expected to include the high school instructor in all departmental events, professional development opportunities and listservs.

The instructor training is held in August of each year.
