Off-Site Development at Harvard
In addition to the residency program and providing outstanding seminars and workshops on-site, the Institute will award full tuition and travel scholarships to a large number of teachers to attend Harvard
’s Project Zero
and other professional development opportunities of equal quality. Teachers selected will come from schools or programs located in the greater Memphis and Shelby County metropolitan region.
Teachers who receive such off-site funding are required to participate in an Institute workshop on-site in which they share what they have learned with others. They will be expected to serve as a Mentor Teacher to a new teacher in the community. Participants will also be highly encouraged to seek opportunties for community service (volunteer work with Boys and Girls Clubs, tutoring, etc.).
