KCIE is an outreach agent within the College of Education and Technology. We develop, implement, and administer credit and non-credit courses and workshops to supplement and expand professional development opportunities. Our mission is to provide quality instructional methodologies for education that are accessible through flexible learning environments. 

KCIE tailors the workshops to your needs in a one-day workshop, a series of workshops, or via online programs. Whether you are furthering your education or finding new ways to apply content to your subject area, our workshops target undergraduates and professionals in the field of pre-K-12 to help further develop content knowledge in the classroom. The workshops, seminars and graduate courses are offered at your location, in Hays, KS, or virtually to meet your specific needs.
