NEW TWBI/DLI EDUCATOR INSTITUTE

The two-day session will take place at the SpringHill Suites Hotel by the San José Airport and will make it much more convenient for the out-of-town attendees.

Hotel rooms are available at a group rate at the Spring Hill Suites near the San Jose Airport. The link to the hotel is listed below and rooms must be reserved by July 4 to take advantage of the offer.

  • Day One consists of a review and foundational research on the critical components of TWBI/DLI educational programs.
  • Day Two will allow teachers and administrators to work with some experts to review start-up components that will support getting started in the Fall. Everyone will benefit from attending these valuable and thought-provoking sessions.

We will be bringing you experienced TWBI Program educators to share their expert advice and resources on how to start off on your journey this Fall. We know you cannot do it alone and that the first years of implementation of a TWBI/DL program are often the most challenging. The two-day work sessions will provide you with the Foundations of TWBI Education and will be coupled with practical and relevant information for your classroom and your school. We are excited about meeting you this Summer and hope that you and your team are able to join us for this unique and vital professional development opportunity.
