What Makes This Program Special
In 2020, we adapted the Summer Institute from a face-to-face program to a fully online program as a result of the covid pandemic. At the end of the week, participants told us:
"It was a great model for what engaging online instruction can be like."
"I liked the broad spectrum of topics available."
"I loved how personal everything felt."
"I liked that the program itself modeled many of the practices that we were being encouraged to incorporate into our teaching practices."
"I was blown away by the comprehensive methods in a virtual setting."
"I liked the many options (workshops and conversations) that could be completed anytime or in real-time. This allows me to work through this material at my own pace and practice on my computer while learning."
"I appreciated the variety of ways to engage. I enjoyed flexible time for any time learning and found that to be more valuable than I expected."
"I felt encouraged to jump in and get creating. I appreciated the values of learning from everyone and acknowledging our humanity."
"Let me count the ways: meeting passionate, like-minded educators; learning new strategies and tools, but learning those tools within the context of a broader idea -- not just "here's a cool tool to use."
