About the Summer Institute
The Minnesota Early Intervention Summer Institute is a unique professional development opportunity provided to the early childhood field through sponsorship by the Minnesota Department of Education.
Gain new insights and develop new skills for your work with young children and families. Enjoy the traditional activities that Summer Institute participants have enjoyed through the years, including the lunchtime barbeque and the evening wine and dessert reception hosted by Minnesota DEC. You’ll find the lusciously landscaped and serene campus of St. John's University provide the perfect setting for learning, reflection, and rejuvenation.
As professional development has evolved within the state, so too has the Summer Institute. The Summer Institute’s structure has changed over the years in response to best practices in adult learning. The most recent research suggests deeper, longer exposure to new content results in higher quality learning and a greater likelihood of practitioners implementing this new information in their work. The Summer Institute’s current model is a two-day institute. Both days begin with a plenary keynote, followed by individual sessions.
Listen to attendees Sandy Daly and Janet Hannaford talk about their positive experiences at the Summer Institute.
