Summary: Created as part of the Building New Pathways to Leadership initiative, this Piktochart presentation documents the Northern California Writing Project’s creation of a Hybrid Summer Institute, as an alternative to the traditional multi-week, face-to-face institute. Site leaders interested in increasing the accessibility and flexibility of their professional development offerings may find inspiration and ideas from this presentation, documenting the NCWP’s story and approach and filled with flyers, agendas, video clips, and other artifacts.

Writing into the Day
Each morning we all signed onto Zoom from the comfort of our own homes. The first thing we did each day was to take some time to write and share. This helped to set the scene for the day and work out any technical glitches.
Teacher Inquiry Presentations
After we had time to write and share out we would all participate in Teacher Inquiry Presentations. In the beginning this was our biggest concern. We were worried that we would loose the impact a TIP can have when we moved onto a digital space…We were surprised, IT WORKED GREAT!
Mornings from 9 am to noon were devoted to whole group writing, sharing, and presentations. In the afternoons, after lunch, participants were able to read on their own, meet with their writing groups, meet with their reading groups, or work on their WordPress websites.
