principles of active learning, assessment, and diversity, which
are integrated into all aspects of the week’s schedule.
Activities include reflective writing, planning, reading,
researching, discussing teaching methods and philosophy,
interactive presentations, and developing teaching materials. By
the end of an institute, participants will have observed,
evaluated, and collected a portfolio of innovative teaching
approaches and instructional materials that are ready to be
adopted and adapted to their own teaching environments.
