Summer Professional Development Ops for Teachers Passionate About Building a Better World Through Education
Summer Program Begins:
If you are an educator passionate about building a just and sustainable world through education, join the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) for a summer institute at our facility on the beautiful coast of Maine! Or.....participate from the comfort of your own home!
The Institute for Humane Education is offering two dynamic, hands-on summer institutes designed to deepen your understanding of the interconnected issues of environmental preservation, animal protection, human rights, and media & culture, and teach you how to inspire students to be leaders for a sustainable world. Our summer institutes will challenge you to think creatively and critically about integrating global issues into your classrooms and communities, preparing you to enliven your teaching and add even greater depth and relevancy to your curricula - regardless of the grade you teach, the educational setting, or the subject areas in which you specialize.
