The SRCD Developmental Science Teaching Institute is designed for teachers of developmental courses at all levels who wish to develop strategies for engaging students, to explore new ideas, to update their knowledge base, and to share ideas and perspectives with like-minded professionals.

To accomplish these goals and encompass broad areas of interest for beginning to advanced teachers of developmental science, the Institute provides a plenary session, a variety of breakout sessions, a poster session, and opportunities for interaction in order to share ideas among participants. The diverse presentation formats allow occasions for informal exchange and enable participants to select an agenda that meets their professional development needs.

The current chair of the Teaching Institute Program is Tara Kuther at kuthert@wscu.edu
