Annual Institute

Time to Register!

I am pleased to announce that the 57th Annual CAES Institute will be held virtually on Friday October 23rd, 2020, at a Zoom screen near you! Please use this link to register.

Our CAES Program Committee, Meghan Miller and Dr. Sara Watkins, have reviewed last year’s Institute evaluations and have implemented a program that I believe is scholarly, pedagogically relevant and socially sensitive to the needs of our teachers and students. 

  • Registration will be free—each registrant will be assigned a confidential login address.

  • Each registrant will be entered into a drawing for prizes and surprises that will be mailed directly to the winners.

  • All presentations will be recorded for follow-up access.

  • CTLE hours (5) will be awarded pending application of educator.
