Become a Seminar Leader
Are you interested in helping K-12 teachers learn more about your content area?
Would you like to find a way to impact K-12 curriculum?
Are you looking for a broader impact opportunity that reaches both teachers and students in low income schools?
Would you like to work with a small group of dedicated, reflective and hard working educators as they develop a stronger understanding of the concepts upon which you have dedicated your career?
For these and many other reasons you should consider leading a DTI seminar! Check out the DTI - Seminar Leader Role Cycle 9.pdf and Teacher Institute Model - Theory of Change.pptx by Ellen Kisker to develop a better understanding of how the Institute model works. Reach out to our Director for more information.
Offer a Lecture
DTI is always looking for more ways to engage our Fellows on campus. If you would like to offer a lecture to our currently enrolled Fellows and/or alumni please reach out and we will work with you to bring your idea to life.
We will also be happy to share any opportunities your department is offering such as lectures, exhibits, workshops, etc. with our current and former Fellows.
Collaborate on Grants/Research Opportunities
If a grant you are writing requires, or would be enhanced by, a broader impact component we would love to collaborate with you. Check out this What is DTI - NSF One Pager.docx that explains a few options for collaboration and then call or email for more detailed guidance.
University Advisory Council
The Delaware Teachers Institute, an affiliate of the Yale National Initiative®, is advised by "Faculty members from the liberal arts and/or sciences who teach at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels. These faculty members lead seminars, advise in the shaping of the seminars to be offered, and review each year the seminars offered by the Institute. The University Advisory Council meets at least annually to receive reports and offer advice on the progress of the Institute. An executive committee of the Council meets more frequently with the director to review and approve the proposed seminars and to provide consultation and assistance with regard to other administrative matters." Article 5 of Yale National Initiative® Articles of Understanding
If you are interested in serving on the University Advisory Council please contact the Director for more information.
