Advanced Placement Summer Institute

Advanced Placement Summer Institute

The Advanced Placement Institute offers advanced placement high school teachers the opportunity to improve their skills through a series of short workshop courses. While these courses aim at curricular and pedagogical development and review of the AP material, they also allow the teachers to hold discussions and make connections that allow them to share teaching methods and materials, all while gaining graduate credit and personal development hours.  The institute takes place each summer. In 2016, the Institute will run from August 1 - August 5.
