Inside-Out is a model of transformative education. Its unique pedagogical approach focuses on change for everyone involved: college students, prison participants, as well as the instructor facilitating the class. Inside-Out has a growing international network of instructors who are taking this method of teaching forward in their own geographical areas and disciplines.

The 2017 Inside-Out Instructor Training Institute Dates:
The Institute is a comprehensive seven-day, 60-hour intensive training program that covers everything necessary to develop a course in the Inside-Out model: curriculum development, setting parameters, institutional relationships, group dynamics, interactive pedagogical approaches, and much more. Three or more of the days provide an opportunity to learn this transformative educational method through observation, hands-on experience, dialogue, and engagement with an Inside-Out Think Tank, a working group of inside and outside alumni, who have years of experience in the Inside-Out methodology. Training will be followed by consultation to assist in on-site program development.
