Nebraska teachers recently participated in a successful Insurance Education Institute offered as online graduate credit through the University of Central Arkansas with a culminating two days of inservice in Omaha. I will provide a news release in the next NASBE newsletter or you can review the attached information, which is also available at http://www.nde.state.ne.us/BMIT/Curriculum/IEI.htm.

 

If you are looking for professional development for your Personal Finance teachers, you may want to consider hosting an Insurance Education Institute in your state. I got the idea from Judith Sams, VA and Sherry Roberts, TN during an NBEA Conference. John Bratton and Victor Puleo are the Institute instructors. You may want to contact John at JBratton@uca.edu about doing an Institute in your state. Nebraska plans to repeat the Insurance Education Institute in the future.
