The Virginia Tidewater Consortium's Summer Institute on College Teaching is in its 36th year of helping faculty at every level and discipline to become more effective teachers. Over the years hundreds of faculty have participated in the Institute and have found it very worthwhile and rewarding. The Institute is unique in that it allows faculty members the opportunity to discuss college teaching and learning in-depth with their colleagues in an open, pleasant environment. Since enrollment in the Institute is limited to a certain number, there is ample time for one-on-one discussion with the other faculty members.
