Programs for Educators

We host eight professional development conferences at Exeter during the summer. These intensive one-week workshops attract more than 450 teachers from a broad spectrum of schools, including private, parochial and public schools in the U.S. and abroad. All based on Harkness learning concepts, the conferences focus on specific subjects, including science, Shakespeare, writing, environmental literature and diversity. We continue to develop new conferences to meet demand, most recently launching the Environmental Literature Institute at Exeter and the Diversity Institute.

Exeter Mathematics Institute takes Harkness teaching and our custom-developed math materials to schools around the U.S. and Europe for workshops taught by PEA math instructors.

We continuously develop our teaching methods to ensure their effectiveness in a changing world, and share techniques with teachers around the globe.
