Institutes are one-, two-, or three-day meetings that offer you information, awareness, and training in the most important issues for preK–college educators today.
Pre-Conference Institutes are offered prior to ASCD conferences to enhance learning and offer a more intensive look at a subject. Topic-specific institutes are offered throughout the year at a variety of locations. Institutes can range from Common Core State Standards to staff development to teaching strategies and much more.
Interactive, online handouts are provided to allow participants to follow along with the presenter. Handouts can be downloaded by registered participants within two weeks of the institute. An e-mail will notify participants when handouts are ready for review.
Below is a typical daily ASCD Institute schedule. For some institutes, the schedule may vary slightly. Registered participants will receive an e-mail closer to the institute dates for additional information regarding exact meeting room locations.
All other meals are on your own.
At selected institutes, we offer a connected event model that allows you to experience the same high-quality professional learning whether you are at the central location or a networked location. Either way, you hear the same presentation and are able to interact with learners at the other locations.
The central location features an in-person presentation by the main expert. Networked locations receive a synchronized broadcast of the central location presentation and have access to a facilitator that is a trained member of the main experts' team. Innovative technology allows for interaction with all locations via in-person breakout sessions, online tools, and resources.
Check each institute's information page to see if it is a networked event.
