ORIAS Summer Institutes invite educators to be students again.
ORIAS hosts two summer programs at UC Berkeley. Teachers of many disciplines, from elementary through high school, are invited to attend the k-12 Summer Institute. The Community College Summer Institute is designed primarily for community college and AP-level history and social studies teachers, particularly those who teach World History, Global Studies, or regional histories.
Summer programs explore unique themes in World History and other international and global topics. Teachers leave ready to incorporate new content into classroom lessons. Presenters explain recent scholarship and address participants' questions. Throughout each day, educators have opportunities share ideas about both content and pedagogy.
Summer Institutes are free and open to all educators. Participants in the k-12 Summer Institute may also receive professional development credit.
