Our friends at the Intellectual Virtues Academy are hosting an Intellectual Virtues Institute on June 24-27 in Long Beach, CA, funded by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation. We include here the text from their announcement.
Greetings from Intellectual Virtues Academy!
Reconnect with your passion for teaching and wrestle with "big questions" in education during this summer's Intellectual Virtues Institute ("IVI"). Learn the "principles and practices" of educating for the qualities of a creative and critical learner -- such as curiosity, open-mindedness, and intellectual humility -- from leading researchers and expert practitioners. IVI will give you an opportunity to reflect on your teaching practice and provide you with practical tools on teaching for thinking in the 21st century.
Educators worldwide are encouraged to apply for this rare opportunity. Groups of two or more teachers from the same school site are encouraged to apply. Tuition for the Institute will be covered by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation and participants will receive $1,000 stipend for attending the entire series. Submit your application by the March 22, 2019 deadline to be included. Applicants will be notified of acceptance into IVI by mid-April.
The Intellectual Virtues Institute will be held from June 24 - 27, 2019 (First Session) in Long Beach, California. IVI kicks off with breakfast at 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Monday, June 24, and continues through Thursday, June 27 with seminars, break-out sessions, studies of the most recent research, and activities led by researchers and practitioners alike. Visit the IVI website to learn more about this year’s schedule of events. A follow-up two-day Second Session will be held in the Summer of 2020, dates to be announced at the IVI.
