Who runs the Institute?

What are my responsibilities as a cohort member? 

Each cohort member is expected to collaborate with one or two other members of the cohort to lead a curriculum unit chosen from the syllabus.  In addition, cohort members will be invited to create a short presentation about their school.  Participants should be able to commit to attending all sessions (recognizing that unexpected emergencies may arise) and to engaging fully in the exploration of the topics on the syllabus.    

How much does the Institute cost?

The program fee is $340 which includes all nine sessions (this represents a 50 percent discount from previous years to account for the virtual format).
