Regional Summer Institutes

Overview

 

The Summer Institutes are intensive multi-day workshops held throughout the United States that introduce STEM educators to the principles of evidence-based teaching. Participants include college and university faculty and future faculty in STEM fields from both research- and teaching-intensive institutions. Each year, approximately 200 participants attend one of up to six “regional” Summer Institutes, which draw faculty teams from institutions in a proximal geographic region.
