As the premier program in digital literacy, we are transforming professional learning with the power of leadership & community connection.
Thanks for your interest in the 2021 Summer Institute in Digital Literacy. Registration opens March 1 and space fills up quickly so we encourage you to register promptly.
Location. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, this program is held fully online, so you can take it from the comforts of home. We use a variety of digital platforms so that there is a mix of both "anytime" (on your own asynchronous learning) and "realtime" (synchronous via Zoom) components.
Course cost. You can choose to enroll in the Summer Institute for graduate credit or not. If you do not need graduate credit, the cost of the Summer Institute is only $400. At the end of the week, you receive a certificate of completion that you can use to document your continuing education. If you take the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy for graduate credit, the program fee for this course is $800.
Grad Credit Option. To receive graduate credit, you complete the 42 hours of instruction during the week of July 11 - 16 and complete 2 additional activities after the program is over. These activities require additional reading and writing, and this work is submitted toward the end of July. Your work is graded and you receive a grade and an official transcript from the University of Rhode Island indicating you completed the graduate course.
Graduate Certificate Option. After attending the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy, many people develop an appetite for learning more. That's why we offer the Graduate Certificate in Digital Literacy, which is a 12-credit certificate program that can be taken over the course of 12 months.
