Summer Institute (TASI)

Held annually in June since 2000, the Teaching Academy Summer Institute (TASI) is a 4-day immersive workshop for campus educators to design, redesign, or update a course. In structured sessions, TASI facilitators will help you build on your prior experiences, learn from successes and failures, and integrate evidence-based methods to enhance student learning.

At TASI, participants will explore foundations of course planning that emphasize learner-centered instruction and equity-minded practices and apply those foundations to (re)design a course.


If you are interested in helping to plan or facilitate the 2019 Summer Institute, please contact Margene Anderson or Michael Maguire.
