Summer Institute Workshops: Graduate education seeking presenters

Concordia University’s School of Education Graduate Department is seeking area education professionals to lead workshops as part of its fourth annual Summer Institute Workshops on the campus of Concordia University Ann Arbor.

The Summer Institute Workshops, which will take place July 30-August 10, are one or two-day workshops led by knowledgeable practitioners, offering the opportunity for teachers to engage with other professionals in vibrant classroom discussion while earning State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH).

Those who have an interest in leading a workshop can submit an online proposal application by March 30, 2018. Presenters will be offered a stipend. The amount will vary, depending on length of workshop.

“Through the Summer Institute Workshops, CUAA’s Graduate School of Education is able to reach out to the community and serve the specific needs and interests of the area districts,” said Marilyn Meell, director of graduate education program. “We’re looking for dynamic presenters who can help teachers improve their quality of teaching, and will select proposals that offer attendees the most current information with applicable classroom strategy.”

Last year’s Summer Institute Workshop included topics such as, “Engaging All Students in Active Learning,” “Healthy Assessment and Feedback Practices,” “Using Technology to Communicate and Differentiate,” and “Keys to Building a High-Performing Culture in Your School.”

Proposals will be reviewed in the order they are submitted, concluding at the end of March. Click here for more details on submitting a proposal topic and application content, or contact Julie Edler at or (734) 995-7459.
