Workshops are 80 minutes long and are offered once per day and provide a space where participants can dive deeper into a topic that relates specifically to their role in education. For example, past workshops have focused on:
1) Particular school subjects, such as literacy, mathematics, social studies, arts and STEM;
2) Levels of schooling, such as early childhood, middle grades, or high school;
3) Topics relevant to specific school roles such as teacher, principal, parent, central administrator, school counselor, student, and school board member;
4) School practices, such as student assignment, social/emotional learning, restorative justice, and assessment, and
5) Special groups of students, such as students with special needs, recent immigrants, emerging bilinguals, and LGBTQ students.
The most successful workshops provide practical tools, skills and strategies that participants can apply in their own classroom, school, district or community. Workshops that are highly interactive and incorporate video or other media are preferred.
Workshops can be targeted towards those who are new to a topic, or provide more advanced knowledge. You can also propose a series of two or more workshops that build upon one another.
Workshops can have one or more facilitators, who will share the honorarium of $525.
Workshop facilitators are invited to attend all four days of the Institute at no charge.
