Continued learning is all about exploring new ways to communicate, building confidence, and strengthening our skills and passion for our profession – education. The Mathematics Institute of Wisconsin approaches professional learning differently by offering courses and workshops that engage you in the same active learning and productive struggle seen in the math classroom. The focus is not purely on progressions or on standards, but is also on equipping you with a strong set of skills that you can carry to your building or classroom.
At our Summer Institutes, teachers experience professional development in an extended format. Each course is designed to provide in-depth learning and exploration of a single domain or conceptual category. The courses are interactive, model best practices, and provide a unique learning community for teachers.
