Attendance and Graduate Credit

The four-day workshops are comprised of 30 hours of classroom instruction, and participants have the additional option of earning graduate credit.

All participants complete a Grade Contract form at the start of the workshop on which they declare their intention to pursue or not pursue graduate credit.

Attendance Certificate

The attendance of institute participants will be recorded for all workshops. At the conclusion of the week, Certificates of Attendance will be distributed to each participant. All missed instruction time will be deducted from the full 30 hours of instruction, and this new total will be reflected on the certificate. Depending on the specific guidelines of your district, you may be able to use this certificate as documentation for Continuing Education Units.

Graduate Credit

To receive graduate credit, a participant must attend all 30 hours of classroom instruction and complete an additional project, as determined and graded by their instructor. The project must include at least 28 hours of additional work beyond the workshop time, which typically includes additional reading throughout the institute week and a special project that must be completed and submitted to the STI instructor within 14 days of the completion of the institute. The work will be graded on an A-F scale. Carleton will grant two quarter credits (the equivalent of 1.33 semester credits) in the corresponding discipline for participants who complete all requirements.
