2018 AP Registration will open October 16, 2017!

Join us and spend four days on the PLU campus in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. PLU prides itself on small class sizes, a student-centered approach, and values of care, competency, leadership, service and difference. While on campus, participants can expect to acquire effective teaching and learning strategies, walk away with an abundance of materials, and be guided though information to help you successfully teach your AP* course. As a bonus, participants will also earn 2 Graduate Level Semester Credits (equivalent to 30 clock hours) at no additional cost!

The 2018 Institute will be Monday, July 9 – Thursday, July 12. The institute cost is $795. Additional charges may apply for those choosing to stay in university housing. The cost of course materials, graduate credits and daily lunch are including in the registration price. Check out “Quick Links” on the right for course offerings, schedule, and fees.
