Intensive Summer Institutes for Educators

Intensive Summer Institutes for Educators


The teaching profession is rapidly changing, and we need innovative and dynamic educators with cutting-edge skills to guide students in the 21st century. Northwestern’s School of Education and Social Policy provides teachers with those skills through a sequence of institutes focused on advanced teaching topics such as instructional coaching, next generation science teaching, gifted education, school climate, and computational thinking.

The one- and two-week summer courses are offered on the beautiful Evanston campus from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to fit into a teacher’s busy schedule. Choose whether or not to take the classes for graduate credit, or for professional development hours only.

Professional Development

No application process; just register. The fee for Summer 2020 is TBD, paid at the time of registration.

Graduate Credit

Apply online. You can apply either for a full masters degree in Teacher Leadership, or as a student-at-large for the intensive summer institutes only. You will need to submit official transcripts as part of the application. If admitted to the program, you will register for courses through CAESAR and will be billed the regular MSEd tuition rate for each course ($3,729 for summer 2020).

Summer 2020 Institutes TBD

Offerings for Summer 2020 will be determined soon. They will appear on this web page as soon as they are available.
