Save the Date: UCCI, Spring 2013


We know that now that we’re well into the throes of the holidays, with Thanksgiving just a couple days away, professional development opportunities in the spring are probably the farthest thing from your mind. But just in case you’re one of those folks who really likes to plan ahead (or in case you want to make, “Plan Ahead for Things” one of your upcoming New Year’s resolutions), we thought we’d give you a heads-up on the following:

UC Curriculum Integration Institutes
April 11-14, 2013
Westin SFO, San Francisco


Join us at the Spring 2013 UCCI Institutes!

Participants at the spring 2013 Institutes will create courses that integrate:

  • Health Science and Medical Technology with Language Other Than English (“e”)
  • Arts, Media, and Entertainment with History/Social Science (“a”)

Why attend the Institutes?

The UCCI Institutes offer participants the opportunity to:

  • Collaborate with educators from around the state to create model courses that bring real-world relevance to traditional academics.
  • Learn new approaches to teaching in their content areas
  • Become better-versed in the UC course-approval process

Even more reasons to participate:

All participants earn:

  • 2.5 Continuing Education Units through the Education Department of UCLA Extension
  • A stipend of $550

Participants’ schools or districts are reimbursed:

  • up to $250 to cover sub costs for teachers who attend the Institutes.

UCCI also covers the costs for participants’ registration, meals and accommodations (though not travel) for the entire four-days of the Institute. UCCI encourages schools and/or districts to cover teachers’ travel costs.

The UCCI is an intense but exciting professional development opportunity for secondary school educators. For those of you curious as to what it might be like, we blogged about one here.

We hope you will apply to participate in the Spring 2013 UCCI Institutes, and we invite you to share this information with colleagues who also may want to attend.
