If you have participated in the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy in any of the past 11 years, come back for the Tier 2 Leadership Program, in which you’ll explore how to lead transformation in your own context. You can participate in Providence for the same program fee as shown above.  

This intensive, in-person six-day course, taught by Charlie Coiro, uses project-based inquiry and encourages participants to use a variety of digital tools while creating a project management plan for integrating digital literacy in the workplace. 


Participants explore topics related to Kouzes and Posner’s Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership. Learn how leadership competencies intersect with online reading, media literacy, critical thinking across the curriculum, and new forms of authorship, composition, collaboration, and sharing.

Tier 2 Program: $990



If you have completed Tier 2 or served as a Faculty Member or Workshop Presenter at the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy, join us this summer in Providence for fellowship, networking, and learning. Program fee includes breakfast, lunch and refreshments each day.

Tier 3 Program: $300
