GSE Institutes immerse participants in the High Tech High K–12 schools and wall-to-wall adult learning environment created by an embedded approach to graduate education. Like HTH schools, adult learning at the GSE is learner-focused and grounded in equity. Institutes are facilitated using teaching practices and structures that support participants in designing and implementing equitable learning experiences in their own context.
Institutes are facilitated by K-12 teachers, students and GSE faculty. Participants visit HTH classes to observe project-based learning and deeper learning in action, and are mentored by HTH teachers throughout their experience on campus. Institutes feature interactive workshops, structured team time for participants to plan how they will put to practice new ideas at their school sites, and opportunities to engage with students and staff.
