The National Conference on Higher Education in Prison (NCHEP) is one of the largest gatherings of prison educators in the country. Over the course of four days, the NCHEP featured workshops that examine the best practices in prison education. I attended workshops on starting higher education in prison programs, fundraising and grant writing, strategic planning, fostering collaborative learning, using technology in the prison classroom, handling the emotional challenges of teaching in prison, and meeting accreditation standards.
