Working Connections IT Faculty Development Institute offers cutting-edge, cost-effective professional development opportunities to current community college IT/convergence faculty (at non-profit schools only) that is often only available through expensive commercial training. Working Connections makes the newest technologies and industry trends available to attendees, as well as encourages the kind of networking and collaboration among educational and business leaders that can strengthen any IT educational program.

Working Connections training workshops offer several tracks that cover a range of the most in-demand topics in IT. The goal of Working Connections is to provide attendees with the expertise needed to teach their respective track in a subsequent semester, bringing the most current information to their classrooms either as a stand-alone course or as supplemental information to an existing course.

Since 2004, more than 1300 people have attended the National Convergence Technology Center's Working Connections professional development events, learning about more than 50 unique IT topics in that time. In the past five years, an average of 68% of the faculty chose a discipline that they were not currently teaching, leading to 155 new degrees, certificates, or courses created and implemented using the training provided. By the National CTC's calculations, over 54,000 students and faculty have been impacted by the training provided by Summer Working Connections training since the program began.
