John P. Ellbogen Summer Institute

Many faculty members and academic professional lecturers have high teaching and research demands that leave little room in their schedules during the academic year for reflection on teaching.  Most faculty and lecturers, however, have 9-month appointments. The John P. Ellbogen Summer institute provides faculty and instructors with focused time to participate in discussions that result in course/curriculum re-design, refinement or improvements in delivery.

Beginning in 2022, the ECTL flipped the paradigm for the Summer Institute. Instead of learning from outside experts, participants now explore and share their own expertise in teaching and learning. Following the model of the Great Teachers Movement, our Summer Institute is based on the philosophy that well-facilitated shoptalk is one of the highest forms of professional development. No individual "expert" can match the collective knowledge, experience, wisdom, creativity, and genius of any group of teachers actively involved in their profession. The participants are the "experts" at the retreat.

 

The John P. Ellbogen Summer Institute is funded by an endowment from the Ellbogen Foundation and the Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning.
