In addition to year-round online course offerings, the E-Teacher Scholarship Program 2009-12 offered a face-to-face training event each year--the E-Teacher Professional Development Program ("Summer Institute")--on the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) campus in Baltimore, Maryland.
This page represents the archival information from the Summer 2010 session.
26 participants from the Fall 2009 and Winter 2010 E-Teacher online courses were invited to attend the 3-week intensive training of the E-Teacher Professional Development Workshop ("Summer Institute") on the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) campus in Baltimore, Maryland.
Candidates for the Summer 2010 Institute were selected from only the Fall 2009 and Winter 2010 course sessions in order to assure sufficient time for visa processing. Special congratulations to the following individuals, who were the top nominees for Summer 2010 [posted 01 April 2010; last updated 13 August 2010].
