2023 UMaine Educators Institute

June 22, 2023 - June 23, 2023

| $349

The second annual University of Maine Educators Institute will be held virtually June 22-23, 2023. This year’s theme is “Promoting Mental Health and Wellness.” The program will feature two strands: “Mental and Behavioral Health Best Practices,” led by Jim Artesani, associate dean for graduate education, research and outreach in the UMaine College of Education and Human Development; and “Leading Educational Change,” led by assistant professor of curriculum, assessment and instruction Rebecca Buchanan. Each strand will include workshops led by experts from UMaine and beyond in areas such as social-emotional learning, building resilience among students, the needs of rural schools and communities, and outdoor education. In addition to the workshops, the virtual institute will have two keynote speakers: Nikole Hollins-Sims, an equity-focused and systems-level thinker, who is currently a special assistant to the Pennsylvania Secretary of Education; and Steve Goodman, a partner with the Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and co-principal investigator with the Integrated MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Supports) Research Network. Lecturer in instructional technology Mia Morrison is coordinating the institute. More details at the 2023 Summer Educators Institute website.
