Participants in the Institute worked independently during the summer to create new instructional units and complete their MOOCs.  On August 27th, all three groups met to share the outcomes of their work, engage in a peer review of their unit designs, and provide feedback on the quality of the Institute.  The overwhelming sentiment was that the Institute provided opportunities to expand skills, identify instructional resources, and engage in discipline-specific professional development.  Drawbacks to the Institute included the lack of discipline-specific feedback during the independent study phase, and the wide range of course complexity and expectations.  These reflections will be used to refine the opportunities available to teachers during the 2018-19 school year.

Innovation Expo


Teachers, parents, and community members came together on April 19, 2018, to explore design strategies, engage in creative play, offer feedback, and imagine new possibilities.

Students demonstrated their ability to engage in collaborative prototyping, present their research findings to expert audiences, and encourage each other to question assumptions, combine disparate ideas, and develop hypotheses in order to create and innovate.
