The School of Education, in collaboration with Open Acadia, offers intensive three-week Summer Institutes in July at Acadia each year designed to meet the professional development needs of educators. Courses are scheduled over 12-15 days of intensive study, with morning and afternoon slots that allow many students to take two courses simultaneously. For 2014, the Summer Institute of courses runs from July 3-18th.
The Summer Institute also includes a Summer Conference Day featuring keynote speakers and workshops. This summer's Conference Day, built around the theme of Creative Professionalism, is scheduled for campus on Friday, July 4th, 2014
