Your application essay should explain how this specific program will benefit you, the participant, professionally. You should, therefore, address the following:
1. A few short stenches about your qualifications, unique perspective, skills, background, and experiences that equip you to do the work of the institute and will make you a valuable contributor to the program.
2. A few short sentences about your intellectual interests and background as they relate to the topic of the institute.
3. The remainder of your essay should discuss how participation will enhance your teaching. Please be specific in describing ways that you envision the program augmenting your existing curriculum or curriculum that you are developing. This section of the essay will carry the heaviest weight in determining your selection.
Overall, we are looking for how your interests, teaching, and experiences are related to the institute and its connection to your professional responsibilities.
