Minnesota Humanities Center Conference

Blog Post paid for by the Minnesota Humanities Center

The Minnesota Humanities Center is taking applications for the Educator Institute, held in St. Paul the week of June 25–30. Administrators, please encourage a team from your building to attend this incredible experience for K–12 educators!

“The Educator Institute remains the single most powerful training I have participated in and has opened the path to on-going changes in dialogue both in the classroom and with community members.”

“It was a great opportunity to learn from and work with educators from around Minnesota who were all working toward the same goal: committing ourselves to doing right by the students we serve.”

The Opportunity
The Educator Institute immerses participants in the Humanities Center’s proven approach to increase student engagement through absent narratives—voices often left out or marginalized. This experience prepares Minnesota educators to develop meaningful connections with their students and implement practical classroom strategies to bring absent narratives pedagogy into practice.

Participants receive…

  • rigorous, relevant K–12 professional development
  • access to educators and community scholars
  • a field trip examining Dakota narratives in Minnesota
  • classroom materials and resources
  • all meals, plus lodging for those outside the Metro area
  • certificate for 45+ clock hours
  • a $3,100 value for $300. 

We anticipate graduate credit will also be available at an additional cost through Metropolitan State University School of Urban Education.

The Humanities Center is pleased to offer the Institute at a dramatically discounted rate of $300 per person. Funding for this $3,100 experience is made possible with generous support from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and other private sources.

Learn more and apply at www.mnhum.org/institute by Friday, March 31.
This professional development opportunity will fill quickly. We encourage educators to form a team and apply as soon as possible.

Questions? In-person and webinar info sessions on the Institute will be held February 21 and March 1. Contact Eden Bart to register: eden@mnhum.org, 651-772-4261.
