A Hands-On, Minds-On Experience

Like No Other!

The Summer Institute in Digital Literacy at the University of Rhode Island is the nation’s premier professional development program in digital literacy. For 2023, the program will be a week-long interdisciplinary gathering designed especially for educators, librarians, and digital media professionals from around the world who work in K-12 schools or higher education contexts.


Join us as we build relationships and take a deep dive into hands-on, minds-on experiences that emphasize inquiry, collaboration, creation, and learning. Reflective walking tours through the city and evening social events across the week will ensure we make the most of our time together.

Location:  The 11th annual program will be held July 9 - 14, 2023 in a fully in-person format at the University of Rhode Island's downtown campus in Providence, RI.


You can participate in the 11th Annual Summer Institute in Digital Literacy in one of four ways:


Providence Program: $990. This program includes a face-to-face learning experience, plus breakfast, lunch, and refreshments each day. 

The program fee includes the complete program experience and permanent access to all digital materials and resources. All participants receive a certificate indicating completion of the 42-hour intensive program.


Providence, Grad Credit Option: $1,300 Take the program in Providence and receive 3 graduate credits for $1,300 by completing 42 hours of instruction during the week of July 9-14.

Graduate Certificate Option. After attending the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy, many people develop an appetite for learning more. That's why we offer the Graduate Certificate in Digital Literacy, which is a 12-credit certificate program that can be taken over the course of 12 months.
