Oakland University Celebrates Its Sixth Year of Advanced Placement (AP*) Summer Institutes

The Office of Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences at Oakland University will host two AP* Summer Institutes on July 9-12, 2012 and July 30-August 2, 2012; at the main campus in Rochester, Michigan. The AP Institutes are ideally suited for secondary education department chairpersons, gifted and talented teachers and curriculum coordinators involved with the Advanced Placement at their high school.

These four-day conferences are endorsed by the College Board,* and provide exceptional training for both experienced and teachers new to AP.* New teachers will have the opportunity to become better informed about the fundamentals of the AP* program. Experienced teachers can participate in the program as a means to experience the latest trends in their areas of expertise.

AP* Institute sessions are led by College-Board credentialed AP* instructors who are prominent in their field of expertise. As a part of their college-board credential, instructors have attended AP* workshops; read and graded AP* exams; and taught AP* courses in their respective schools for many years.

Institute instructors will provide knowledge on key elements of AP,* including, but not limited to: Structuring AP* courses, preparing students for the AP* exam while keeping instruction engaging, reviewing released AP* exams and diagnosing scores, and receiving appropriate AP* textbooks and resources. The courses are approved for SB-CEUs through the State Board of Education.

Meals-included plans and special rate hotel lodging are available for OU participants. Please visit the website for more details on the OU Summer Institutes and for registration updates: www.oakland.edu/pace/cas

*College Board approved program.
