Western State Colorado University in Gunnison will host the 10th Summer Teacher Institute June 9-21.

The Institute offers a variety of graduate credit content courses for K-12 educators who want to enrich their existing curricula. Participants enhance their content knowledge, share pedagogy, learn creative ways to deliver lessons and network with educators from throughout Colorado and beyond.

The courses, which range from 1 to 3 credits, offer opportunities for hands-on, individualized activities, instructional enhancements and outdoor classrooms.  Topics range from Spanish for Educators to Experiential Education in the classroom. Many include field trips and hands-on activities which educators can use in their classrooms.

Educators can register for classes the entire two weeks or select various classes throughout that time. On-campus housing is available.

Educators can qualify for an early registration discount of up to 50 percent if registered by May 15.

Funds provided by the Ann Zugelder Endowment have allowed Western State Colorado University to expand graduate credit courses for teachers.
