2020 Institute

Summer Technology Institute

August 4 – 6, 2020


We are excited to announce that the Summer Technology Institute will be moving forward!

Yes! We will still “gather” to learn and network during our annual Summer Technology Institute planned for August 4-6, 2020. In order to stay safe and accommodate social distancing requirements, we are moving the Summer Tech Institute programming to a virtual format. Strands and workshops will continue as planned, with an expanded lens to embrace and reflect upon the current shifts in our educational system. Check out the learning strands below, and watch for more detailed information about workshops, hands-on activities, and more!

Participation in Summer Technology Institute will require enrollment in EDT 580 via MaineStreet. For non-degree students, please contact Mia Morrison mia.morrison@maine.edu for registration.

We look forward to learning and networking with all of you!
