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.
Teaching and learning in K-12 and higher education classrooms have undergone a tectonic shift. The Designing Virtual Learning Environments Institute addresses how to navigate these changes.
Designed for educators who are being challenged to transform their practice in virtual environments, this program exposes teachers to the most recent trends in learning primarily through educational technologies. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to successfully design a virtual learning environment.
This program explores perspectives that consider not just the learner and content but additional variables needed to ensure that successful learning takes place. Societal and technological influences on learning will also be addressed.

Director for Online Learning, Catalyst
Teaching, Learning, and Leadership Division
Penn Graduate School of Education
