Discovery Educator Network (DEN) Summer Institute 2022

Tuesday, July 19 & Wednesday, July 20

The DEN Summer Institute (DENSI) is a one-of-a-kind, collective professional learning experience exclusive for DEN STAR educators.

For two immersive days, DENSI participants engage in a comprehensive learning track that allows them to learn, share, and connect with other members from around the world! They will uncover new ideas and resources, as well as an expanded professional learning network to support their instructional and leadership goals. Educators who join us for DENSI will leave feeling energized and confident in using Discovery Education to impact students and other educators for the year ahead.

DENSI 2022 is designed for all DEN STAR educators who are teachers, principals, instructional coaches, technology facilitators, library media specialists, and members of district support teams.

We’re excited to spend two days with you!
Here’s what you can expect from our time together.

Tuesday, July 19
10:30 AM – 3:00 PM ET

Day 1

Join the Discovery Education team and hear about the exciting product and content updates coming to the DE learning platform for the upcoming school year. And, connect with other community members in a similar role to brainstorm and share ideas on using DE in the classroom and sharing it within your school or district. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend a session of a fellow community member to see DE in action!

Wednesday, July 20
10:30 AM – 3:00 PM ET

Day 2

Build on the excitement from our first day and invite a friend to join us as we take a deeper dive into Discovery Education. We’ll start the day learning more about DE’s learning platform and our Social Impact programs, then allow time for you to connect with your best resource: EACH OTHER! You’ll have another opportunity to select a session and hear from a fellow community member to see how they explicitly use DE in their school. And we’ll close the day, together, sharing our best practices and ideas for how we head into the next school year maximizing the use of DE!
