Lemke participated in Kellogg Institute
Karen Lemke of Adams State University has recently received certification as a "Developmental Education Specialist" from the Kellogg Institute for the Training and Certification of Developmental Educators. Lemke was one of forty-four educators selected from across the United States to participate in the Kellogg Institute and its certification process during the 2012-13 academic year.
The Kellogg Institute, now in its 34th year, offers a unique month-long living/learning experience for the training and certification of educational professionals who work with academically underprepared students on college campuses. Each year individuals participate in a summer training program, followed by a semester's practicum in which participants implement new techniques on their home campuses.
Lemke was awarded certification as a result of her participation in the training program and completion of an implementation project at Adams State University. The certification as "Developmental Education Specialist" is awarded through the Kellogg Institute, in conjunction with Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina.
