The Teacher Institute continues to be the MCA’s most immersive and collaborative year-long professional development program. It launches this summer with a new program design, aimed at helping teachers conceptualize, incubate, and implement innovative, contemporary curriculum.
This year, the MCA will select 15 passionate, creative teachers who wish to shake up their practice and make an impact in the lives of their students and school community.
Applicants must propose a contemporary-art based project or unit to be developed during the Summer Residency, implemented in the classroom during the Fall semester, and reflected upon through writing and the production of a shareable resource in the Winter and Spring.
We are looking for new projects that critically engage your students with the art and ideas of our time; champion inquiry and dialogue; seek to build and engage community; and push beyond comfort zones.
