Register now for the Dec. 8 RTI Workshop

AUGUSTA, GA – The GRU College of Education will offer its popular Response-to-Intervention Workshop on Dec. 8, with presentations from local and statewide educators.

Dr. Nai-Cheng Kuo, Professor of Education at the GRU College of Education, says that the demand for educators trained in RTI is expected to continue to expand over the next 10 years. Based on multiple assessment data, special education teachers utilize tailored instructional methods to assist diverse students with different physical, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive needs. Accommodation and modification are incorporated to accelerate students’ learning.

“We hold professional development workshops every semester and closely work with our partner schools to ensure that all students can succeed with caring, love, respect, and evidence-based practices,” Kuo said.

The RTI Workshop will be Monday, Dec. 8, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., in the JSAC Ballroom on the Summerville campus. The schedule is printed below. A certificate will be provided to those who complete the 2-hour workshop. PLU credits are included.

The workshop is free and open to the public. Registration is required and limited to 200 participants. Click here to reserve your spot. Last year, registration for the free community workshop filled up for both sessions
