  • Sustaining a SIM Initiative in Montana to Improve Student Outcomes, July 2020- June 2023
    Funded by Educational Promise Foundation, PI: Jocelyn Washburn
    SIM Professional Developers in Montana will build capacity to support SIM professional learning and implementation to improve student outcomes. A state-wide SIM Leadership Team, comprised of Montana SIM Professional Developers will lead the initiative. The effort is coordinated by Jocelyn Washburn at KUCRL and Tom Manthey at the Montana Center for Inclusive Education at MSUB. Developing a self-sustaining SIM initiative in Montana is the primary focus of the initiative with the ultimate goal of improving student outcomes. Funding empowers SIM Professional Developers to increase skills in delivering PD and coaching in blended virtual and face-to-face environments, to create opportunities for SIM Professional Developers to expand their networks and school-based expertise with SIM micro-credentials, and to host a Montana SIM Update Conference in the near future.
  • Strategic Partnership Formed with SIM and iDEC
    The Inclusive Digital Era Collaborative (iDEC) in collaboration with the Professional Development Research Institute (which includes SIM) was awarded $120,000 to conduct research and professional development activities as a result of a competitive bidding process through Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
