What is Paideia? Paideia (pie-day-a) is a pedagogy that encourages inquiry-based, democratic discussions with others around a common text. It can be used with all ages and in all subject areas. The Augsburg Paideia Program has been offering training to the Augsburg community and teachers across the United States for the past twenty-nine years. We invite you to join us this summer for several events.
PAIDEIA INSTITUTE: The 29th annual Paideia Institute, July 23 – 27, 2018, will explore the focus question “Beauty is. . .?”. This timely and timeless concept will be explored through seminar discussions on variety of genres, along with coaching activities to assist participants in facilitating seminars within their own curriculum.
FEES: Registration for the Summer Institute is $650. SCHOLARSHIPS: We are pleased to offer two $500 scholarships, the Marie McNeff Scholarship for Augsburg faculty and the Rita Kaplan Scholarship for staff. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of an applicant statement explaining how the scholarship would enhance professional development and student learning. Please apply no later than June 15.
PAIDEIA INVITATIONAL: Don’t have time for the full Paideia Institute? Attend our half day Paideia Invitational for a sampling of how teachers are engaging students in civil discourse. The invitational is Friday, July 27 from approximately 9:30 am to 12:30 pm in Old Main. The agenda includes participation in a morning seminar and lunch.
