Update from pepnet 2 and National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes
This message marks the final transition from pn2 to the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes. The work of NDC will build on the outstanding accomplishments of the previous cycles. All individuals involved with pn2 and NDC share the same goal of supporting postsecondary success for deaf individuals across the country. We pledge to work together to support a smooth transition. Please bookmark our new website address, http://www.nationaldeafcenter.org. As the new year starts, you can expect to receive regular communications from NDC. As always, you can reach us at email@example.com. We look forward to serving you!
Pn2 QuickClasses are six week, asynchronous, online classes. They cover a range of topics designed to assist the capacity building efforts of institutions, agencies, and individuals working with students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
QuickClasses are pre-approved for RID (Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf) and CRC (Certified Rehabilitation Counselor) continuing education credit. Participants successfully completing QuickClasses receive "Verification of Training Completion," which can be used to obtain credit from additional credentialing organizations.
We offer five sessions of QuickClasses each year. Registration for each session opens approximately one month prior to the start date. Go to our QuickClass page to learn more about what classes are offered and when as well as how you can register.
Pepnet 2 offers a variety of free, online training modules. These are self-paced learning activities which are available on demand. Log into your pn2 account and you'll see a complete list in the "Opportunities" section of your eLearner Dashboard.
The pn2 resource library contains a variety of free resources, including current strategies and evidence-based practices for working with deaf and hard of hearing individuals.

The Building State Capacity Summit is designed to assist state teams as they review critical issues, exchange information, and establish strategies to support programs and services that increase the number and proportion of students who continue past high school and complete postsecondary programs or become employed. State teams are invited to participate in the Summit’s annual national working meetings, and are encouraged to continue working throughout the year as a team to develop and implement their state plans. Teams may include representatives from education, vocational rehabilitation, families, postsecondary education, community agencies, transition services, and/or personnel preparation programs.
2016 Odyssey Focuses on Collaboration
The 2016 issue of Odyssey was the result of a partnership between the Clerc Center and pepnet 2. It focuses on the importance of building collaborations at the national and state levels to support the education of deaf and hard of hearing students. In particular, the issue emphasizes how collaborations can facilitate the successful transition of students from secondary education to postsecondary education and employment. The Building State Capacity Summit is all about collaboration, and many of the contributing authors are members of their state teams. We’re very pleased to share this issue with you.
