The Instructor Certification Program (ICP) is designed to enrich the depth of instructor knowledge and skills in the practice of teaching and learning at Lethbridge College. ICP courses allow instructors to collaborate with others across the college to learn from and share with each other. It is expected that instructors complete the ICP program within their first five years of instruction at the college.
Occasionally, a new instructor has previous extended experience or knowledge in a specific area of the ICP. In this case, they can apply for Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR). This means the instructor can provide evidence of learning and receive course credit without taking the course. Instructors must provide evidence that they have achieved 75-80% of a course’s outcomes.
