• SLI-2020

    Summer Literacy Institute

    After lengthy discussion with the Summer Literacy Institute planning committee and university leadership, we have decided to cancel the 2020 institute at this time. Although this decision was a difficult one to make, we believe we are doing the right thing given the situation right now. 

    In lieu of the Institute this year, we are hosting a brief online literacy workshop in mid-July. This workshop will be free and available as a resource to literacy educators to help you navigate the challenges during this unprecedented time.  Please monitor the Hamline SLI webpage for details on the workshop, we will update the site once we have everything in place. 

    For those teachers who were hoping to earn credit for lane change by attending the SLI, we will be working to develop a one-credit digital literacy course that will roll out in mid-July. There are several other options for earning credits for lane change from Hamline which you can learn more about here (add link).

    We appreciate your support and patience as we worked through this process. We hope you can join us in July 2021. Please contact Tammie Hertz with any questions (THertz01@hamline.edu).
