Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences

The Olin College Summer Institute was held in a virtual format during the week of June 8-12, 2020.


The program included a set of workshops led by Olin faculty, staff, and students addressing the design of student-centered learning experiences. Thanks to the generosity of the Kern Family Foundation, educators worldwide were able to participate in these workshops at no cost. See the Workshops page for more information.

Design Coaching

As part of the Virtual Summer Institute, Olin also offered a remote version of the Design Coaching program, an integral part of the Summer Institute that provides a scaffolded experience to enable teams to make meaningful progress on curricular and institutional projects. See the Design Coaching page for more information.
