Partnership Strategies: Summer Institutes
University of Tennessee at Martin
Universities and PK-12 schools both are focused on student learning, yet we interact rarely. The University of Tennessee at Martin would like to change this through our partnerships with local schools. This breakout session describes Summer Institutes and various other strategies we are using to engage faculty from both institutions to collaborate and learn from one another.
