We are excited to announce that this year’s Summer Institute will mark a transition of leadership. We hope you can join former directors Randall Shrock and Debbie Rickey as they help Randy Wisehart mark a transition of leadership to Becky Dimick Eastman. We will do this by continuing to focus on our graduates and their stories. We will share some emerging themes from our interviews and from the written work of our graduates. We will be asking you, our graduates, to help us make this event a success by sharing your successes, your questions, your wonderings, your hopes.

It is important to us in Graduate Programs in Education to value craft knowledge. Too often, teachers are doing amazing things, but those ideas stay hidden in their classrooms. Too often, teachers' stories are not shared and a teacher’s accumulated knowledge is lost. Help us maintain our tradition of helping each other continue to create craft knowledge as we learn from each other.


If you wish to participate in the summer institute but do not wish to earn college credit, the cost for the two-day institute is $80, You will earn hours that may be part of your professional growth points toward license renewal in Indiana. Graduate credit is also available.
