Discovering Connections Teacher Institute

Summer 2020 Program postponed

Along with our partner museums, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this summer’s planned Discovering Connections Teacher Institute. With so many uncertainties about how teaching will be conducted in the fall, we realize that the original design of the institute may not meet current needs. We plan to reschedule for next summer, with a curriculum adapted to new modes of teaching. If you already applied for this summer’s Discovering Connections, we will keep your application so you do not need to reapply. In the meantime, keep an eye out for each museum’s program offerings for the upcoming school year.
