Faculty List

The Summer Institute for Educators has been offered since 2001 and holds classes on the beautiful New England College campus in Henniker, New Hampshire. Educators learn from custom courses that are developed in response to real needs and goals of area schools and institutions.  Participants earn accreditation-required contact hours, graduate program credits, and expertise on innovative tools, technologies, and methods that enhance teaching effectiveness and improve student learning. In addition to the courses for credit, NEC is offering Professional Development Workshops. 

Our courses change each year and are a reflection of what information is needed by teachers and educators in the field. We know educators want and need to stay fresh.”
