REGISTERING FOR 2015 SUMMER INSTITUTE
2015 Discovering Community Summer Institute has been postponed
This June we will welcome the arrival of a new Director of Education at the Vermont Folklife Center—Kathleen Haughey. After much consideration we concluded that our priorities for the summer months should be introducing Kathleen to the various dimensions of our education program ahead of the start of the new school year, and focusing our energies on completing the final stages of development on the Discovering community Web site so it can better serve as both showcase for student-produced work and resource for educators who are interested in undertaking student-driven, community-based projects grounded in ethnography and place-based education.
To this end we have chosen to wait until the summer of 2016 to stage our next Discovering Community Summer Institute for Educators when Kathleen will have deeply immersed herself in Vermont schools over the 2015-2016 school year, and all of the tools will be in place to create an expanded experience for both educators and their students, especially online.
If you have questions about any aspect of our education outreach program—regarding next year’s summer institute or our on-site work with students in schools around the state—please feel free to contact Kathleen Haughey at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (802) 388-4964.
