Summer Institutes

During our annual Summer Institutes, visitors engage with Olin faculty and one another for intensive workshops that explore topics like Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences.  Our Summer Institutes offer a range of extended immersions into Olin's approach to co-design, providing an inviting on-ramp to extended collaboration.  The 2017 Summer Institutes begin with Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences,  June 5-9, 2017. During the week of June 12-16, 2017, we will hold a series of Focus Workshops.

Catalyzing Faculty Transformation Throughout New England

For New England colleges and universities, we are able to offer a collaboration sponsored by The Davis Educational Foundation.  Catalyzing Faculty Transformation Throughout New England will provide up to 75% tuition scholarships to Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences for teams of up to five faculty from two schools in the six-state New England region to attend the Collaboratory Summer Institute in 2017, and may be preceded by an introductory workshop at your institution.  Participating teams need not necessarily represent only engineering programs; all educational disciplines and types of schools (liberal arts, community colleges, etc.) interested in innovative curricular change will be considered.
