What if there were a proven way to get your students excited about learning and improve test scores—in any subject?
It’s called Design-Based Learning (DBL). ArtCenter's Summer Institute for Teachers is a five-day, intensive program in this time-tested methodology. This method taps students’ natural creativity to develop higher-level thinking and enhance comprehension of the K–12 curriculum. It is never restricted by the changing world of content standards.
Regardless of a teacher’s grade level, subject or need for integrating the curriculum, supplementing current methods with Design-Based Learning can make a dramatic difference in the classroom.
This five-day institute provides three semester units of credit—units are transferable to the M.A. Degree Program (45 units) or the Certificate Program (20 units) in Design-Based Learning at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. The program is open to K–12 educators, principals, administrators, college instructors and after-school program directors and staff.
