Online learning community brings learners face-to-face

The Institute for Professional Studies in Education (IPSE) ME-PD Online Learning Community program welcomed 30 teachers and educational professionals to campus in July for a one-week Summer Institute.  The Summer Institute was an opportunity for learners to participate face-to-face in experiential group activities, leadership activities, and collaborative group presentations related to the seven curricular strands within the program: Learning in Community, Educational Research, Best Practice Pedagogy, Curricular Development and Assessment, Democracy, Diversity and Social Justice, Educational Technology, and Educational Leadership.
