Secondary PACE students are on campus this week
Approximately 35 students are on the Lewis-Clark State College campus through Wednesday of this week participating in the Secondary Pathways for Accelerated Certification and Endorsement (PACE) Program’s Orientation and Workshop.
LCSC’s PACE program is nationally recognized and helps qualified individuals earn certification in Elementary or Secondary Education. Individuals with either a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree can earn a Secondary Teaching Certificate in a variety of teaching fields through the PACE Program.
PACE allows individuals an accelerated way to earn their certifications based on documented life experiences and demonstrated knowledge and skills.
Typically, a Secondary Education Certification through PACE takes three semesters with the program delivered on the Internet through Blackboard courses, which include web cameras and software. The web cameras allow LCSC professors to work with students as well as watch and critique their classroom skills.
Students in the program are required to attend a three-day on-campus summer orientation and workshop, which these students are currently attending. Some of the students are close to finishing their work in the program, while others are just starting. The orientation and workshop is held only once a year.
Students attending the workshop are learning about technology, including working with web pages and developing online classes for distance learning.
Students will be attending workshop through 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday before returning home.
