The 2018 TTEF Summer Institute will be in the Philadelphia metro area at Arcadia University, from Saturday, July 7th to Saturday, July 14th, 2018.

About the Summer Institute:

At the TTEF Summer Institute, Fellows spend seven days learning, planning, and collaborating with each other to deepen their knowledge about cutting-edge instructional practices and design teacher inquiry projects that impact their teaching and research. In the first four days of the institute, Fellows will attend workshops facilitated by leading scholars and educators. The final three days are devoted to re-designing syllabi and creating teacher inquiry plans. After the institute, Fellows will implement their projects, and publish results in a co-edited book. Opportunities for additional research and teacher collaboration will also be available.
