Teacher Institute

Mark your Calendars for Western's 16th Summer Teacher Institute. June 08-20, 2020

The Teacher Institute provides opportunities for educators to enhance content knowledge, share pedagogy and network with educators from throughout Colorado and beyond.

The Teacher Institute offers a variety of content courses designed specifically for K-12 educators who want to enrich their existing curricula. Intensive seminars with qualified instructors will immerse participants in their subjects. Opportunities include hands-on, individualized activities, instructional enhancements and outdoor classrooms.

The Teacher Institute is made possible through funds provided by the Ann Zugelder Endowment. This allows us to offer a discount of 20% for districts with 2 teachers, and a discount of 50% for districts of 3 or more. New this year: Any past participant of the Teacher Institute can be an Ambassador for TI to earn free credits.  If you refer 5 teachers to register for a class you get one free class.  If you refer 10 teachers to register for a class you get two free classes.  You simply will need to tell friends/teachers to refer you when they complete their registrations. 

We offer courses that meet CDE’s new English Learner PD requirements (CLD). Look for courses marked with a ' * '. If you have further questions about courses or the requirement, please contact Jenny Whitacre, STI Director.

*Registration for the 2020 Teacher Institute will be available by mid-February 2020.*
