Advanced Placement Institute

During the summer of 2020, the office of Professional Education at UNC Asheville welcomed high school teachers who have an enthusiasm for teaching and a desire to learn more about their content areas, pedagogy, and methodology while becoming certified to teach Advanced Placement credit courses.

At the end of the Advanced Placement Institute, participants were:

  • prepared to teach advanced placement curriculum coursework material to students, preparing them for strong performance on the Advanced Placement exam
  • prepared to employ a variety of teaching methods to encourage rigor appropriate for each subject
  • part of a community of learners whose content knowledge, pedagogy and best practices can be shared by participants beyond the Institute.
