Each institute participant will engage in the following opportunities:
- Six weeks prior to the Institute, participants will receive the text, Understanding by Design (Wiggins and McTighe, 2005). Using a reflective journal, participants are encouraged to read the text before attending the Institute. The text will be used as a basis for keynote sessions and breakout sessions.
Participants will attend a three-day professional development program; lodging is available and included in the Institute fee. The program will include keynote presentations, practice-based workshops, round-table discussions and technology sessions.
Participants will develop curriculum and instructional plans for implementation in their respective schools.
- Participants will be invited to present their implemented projects and/or publish their results.
