Penn GSE Virtual Institutes bring Penn's faculty and resources to teachers, educators and leaders across the globe. In these innovative professional learning modules, participants engage in real-time, online group sessions as well as reflect and learn at their own pace in asynchronous sessions. Institutes typically span three consecutive half days, allowing participants to accelerate their learning while continuing to fulfill their professional obligations.

Developed for individuals and team members who work on or support those who affect the design of learning environments, this Institute will focus on understanding how and why today's learning environments can be improved to better support students. Participants will leave the Institute with their own blueprint for a New School Model, along with resources to help pursue their vision.
