2017 Summer Institute
CRLA is excited to announce the dates for the upcoming Summer Institute for Mentor and Tutor Trainers!
The Summer Institute will be held July 30 through August 2, in St. Louis, Missouri, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Participants will sign up for either the Mentor Trainer Track or the Tutor Trainer Track. Registration is strictly limited to 35 participants per track in order to keep the groups small and allow for one-on-one interaction with faculty members.
For those participants who want to learn more about CRLA’s International Mentor Training Program Certification (IMTPC) or International Tutor Training Program Certification (ITTPC), we will offer a 3-hour pre-conference workshop on July 30.
Registration is $675 for CRLA members and $775 for nonmembers. Registration includes the Institute registration fee, training resources, breakfast and lunch on July 31-August 2, and a welcome reception on July 30.
Rooms at the Ritz-Carlton are $159 a night single or double.
You’ll leave the Summer Institute with a bibliography of resources, a SWOT analysis, practical, interactive training activities, and more. Whether you are an experienced higher education professional looking for new training techniques and tools or someone who is new to the field or to a new position, you will leave this Institute with the knowledge to implement best practices in mentor and tutor training.
Registration will open on April 3, 2017.
