CDWP Invitational Summer Institute

The 2020 Invitational Summer Institute will take place July 6-17, 2020. During the Invitational Summer Institute, teachers immerse themselves in their own writing and in the study of effective teaching. Gathering on the UAlbany campus, participants study current research and theory, share strategies for teaching writing, participate in writing groups, and engage in collaborative inquiry. Teachers can earn up to 70 CTLE hours.

The learning doesn’t stop when the institute ends. Teachers join an extended community of teacher leaders who have participated in past CDWP institutes. They participate in follow-up seminars throughout the school year and have opportunities to engage in varied regional and national professional learning events.
