2024 Summer Teacher Institute

Monday, June 24 – Thursday, June 27

10 am – 3 pm

Expanding Literacies, Extending Classrooms

This year’s Summer Teacher Institute, offered by the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA), will focus on visual literacy strategies for the classroom and art museum visits. It will demonstrate a multimodal platform that provides all learners (at all reading and writing levels) a space to grow, explore, and innovate. Participants will observe, write, and sketch in response to works of art from several different cultures. 

This year’s program will take place at Yale West Campus in West Haven, CT, a fifteen-minute drive from the YCBA (currently closed for renovation) on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Thursday’s program will be held at the YCBA. Parking is free. Lunch and per diem will be provided.

As space is limited, we will be able to accept no more than twelve participants for this year’s institute. Participants must be currently working as teachers and available for all four days. 

Please complete the form on this page to register for the Summer Teacher Institute 2024.

The application deadline is Monday, June 10,  11:59 pm ET.
