Stanford Global Studies and the Center to Support Excellence in Teaching present a series of workshops that offer teachers the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of key topics of current relevance and hone their pedagogical expertise in collaboration with leading Stanford scholars.

All institutes during the 2020-2021 academic year will be offered virtually. This shift, which ensures the safety of our scholars, staff, and participants, also affords participants two exciting opportunities: to engage with nationally and internationally renowned scholars and to participate in high quality distance learning with all program design decisions intended to model what also can be done with students.

Please note that with our move to the virtual space we have changed our typical institute structure from three full days of synchronous learning to three half days, moving the extra learning to asynchronous assignments. In this way we will still be able to provide a rich arc of learning as well as two continuing education units while minimizing Zoom fatigue. We have built all assignments with specific intention knowing that they will serve as meaningful onramps to and between the real-time learning sessions.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Each workshop contains approximately 20 hours of professional development.  Districts may award 2 CEUs for individuals who complete a single workshop and complete two hours of post workshop pedagogical follow-up. Participation in all three workshops equates to approximately 60 hours of professional development and districts may award 6 CEUs for individuals who complete the entire three-workshop series and receive a record of completion.

Please note that Stanford University makes no representation that participation in the course, including participation leading to a statement of accomplishment, will be accepted by any school district or other entity as evidence of professional development. Participants are solely responsible for determining whether participation in the course, including obtaining a record of completion, will be accepted by a school district, or any other entity, as evidence of professional development coursework.



Learners may enroll for the entire series (three, 3-day workshops) for $500 or may register for individual workshops of their choice at $199 each.
