The Fourth Institute

Four Days of Learning
June 7-10, 2021

Twice annually, June and December, the Maryland Department of Labor, Division of Workforce Development and Adult Learning hosts a series of professional development training sessions targeted to support all stakeholders in adult education. These opportunities are innovative and thoughtful professional development offerings for instructors and program leadership. These sessions vary in length and and cover all topics specific to adult education and aligned with WIOA. Sessions are facilitated by seasoned instructors and experts in adult education. Ultimately, the goal of the VTI is to increase adult literacy and improve student outcomes both in Maryland and where you are. Participation is open to all and the content is offered at no cost. All sessions are recorded and available in The Archive.
