Teaching and Learning in Out-of-School Time
Summer Institute

July 24–26, 2009
at Arcadia University
Glenside, PA

Out of school time offers opportunities for learning that are distinctly different than the school day. Turning those opportunities into dynamic, effective programming requires a special set of skills, whether applied to extended day, afterschool, before school, or summer programming. See how to put theories of learning into action, spark youths interest, and support academic and social skill-building using non-formal methods.
Join your colleagues from around the country for three dynamic days of hands-on activities, projects, and
demonstrations, and get what you need to take back and put content into practice at your sites, with your
children and youth. Follow-up online sessions go deeper with research, resources and practice, through
discussion and reflection, and keep you connected with the Institute’s learning community.
