Due to current concerns related to the novel coronavirus, we are re-envisioning our annual Summer Institute as online professional development training. This page describes these online professional development workshops. Click on the name of each workshop, from the accordion menu above, for dates and description of the content covered in each workshop. Or see the online workshop schedule.
How are these structured?
Each workshop will be hosted on Canvas, our online learning system. Canvas works in any web browser and there are mobile apps available for iOS and Android devices. A few days before the beginning of the workshop, registrants will receive an email with information about how to access the workshop in Canvas.
Activities will include:
- Learning modules that include short lectures, video, and accessible texts delving into the core concepts of the workshop. Additional resources are also included if you want to dig deeper into topics that interest you.
- Live video conferences with workshop facilitator(s). Twice we will connect live through Canvas to discuss workshop topics and engage with questions that emerge from our work together. The conferences will be recorded for those who cannot join the live conversation. These provide an opportunity to connect with each other and extend our knowledge and understanding of the materials.
Who should participate?
Professionals who serve middle, high school, and college students in any capacity can benefit from this workshop. However, the content is geared towards supporting students who learn differently, including those with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, or executive function challenges. The workshop is designed to fit into the busy schedules of educators and other professionals.
How much time will it take?
Getting the most of out of each workshop will require about 10 hours of engagement over the two weeks of each workshop. With the exception of the live video chats, you can engage with the workshop materials at any time from anywhere with an internet connection.
Each workshop is $299 per person. If you register a group (4 or more people) for a single workshop, you will receive 10% off the total cost.
