Online Summer Institute

The Morehead Writing Project will offer its innovative Online Institute during Morehead State University’s Summer I session June 7 – July 2. Participants can join the Online Institute as either Morehead State University students by enrolling in Eng 608 or Eng 609 as graduate students or registering with the Morehead Writing Project for 36 hours of professional development credit at a cost of $1,000 (limited scholarships are available for PD hours).

The four-week online program will be offered asynchronously. Participants will be given the opportunity to begin working before the June 7 start date if they choose and can choose the days and times that suit their individual schedule to work on each week’s tasks.

The Online Summer Institute will offer the same program that the Morehead Writing Project has offered for the past nine summer: building a community to support the teacher as writer, reflective practitioner, researcher, and leader. Read about what teachers had to say about the 2020 Online Summer Institute.

Participants will work with Google tools, HyperDocs, Ungrading, Project-Based Learning, and have the opportunity to focus their work on solving a problem specific to their teaching context. The Online Summer Institute offers research-backed PD designed to fit the individual schedules and needs of educators. This professional development is approved by the Kentucky Department of Education, the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy grant, the FY20 Kentucky Comprehensive Literacy grant, and the Effective Instructional Leadership Act which makes this professional development right for teachers, teacher leaders, literacy coaches, supervisors of instruction, and administrators.

Teachers at any grade level and in any content area are welcome. Contact Morehead Writing Project Director Deanna Mascle ( to learn more.
