2016 Annual Institute Workshop Proposals - May 1st Submission Deadline

As many of us return from our Winter breaks, thoughts of Spring are not far away. Before we know it we will be swamped with end-of-year papers, tests, scoring, grades, et cetera. But for now, we return to the classroom rested and refreshed, and hopefully full of new ideas and enthusiasm. Before the end-of-year rush hits, our Institute Planning Committee would like you to consider what you could share with your colleagues at the 2016 Annual Institute.

Surely you have some new research, passionate knowledge, best practices, favorite projects, or teaching triumphs about which your friends and colleagues would like to learn. Classics educators, whether they teach elementary, middle, or high school or at the college or graduate level are welcome to submit proposals for a workshop or presentation.

The 2016 Annual Institute will be held at Union College in Schenectady, October 28-29. The deadline for submissions is May 1st. Please submit your proposal online via the following link:
