A weeklong exchange between teachers, educators at multiple Chicago museums, and MacArthur Fellows at the center of the exhibition "Toward Common Cause."

This Summer Teacher Institute offers participants—classroom teachers at any grade and any subject matter, teaching artists, and cultural educators from arts or community-based organizations—to engage deeply with the work of MacArthur Fellows and reflect upon some of the most important issues and questions of our time while developing lesson plans for the 2021–2022 school year.

FREE. CPDUs available for eligible educators. Pending final confirmation, the Summer Teacher Institute is currently planned to happen primarily in-person at the University of Chicago and partner organizations throughout Chicago, with transportation provided.

August 16–20, 2021
10 am–4 pm
The full schedule and additional information will be made available in the near future.

Organized by the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago.
