In 2006, I attended the Park City Mathematics Institute. I shared some of the work I did there on my website.
Here is some information about this summer’s program, from the amazing Peg Cagle.
An immersive, three-week residential program, the Park City Mathematics Institute / Teacher Leadership Program provides participating secondary math teachers with the unique opportunity to engage in a deep dive into their own professional growth and learning, alongside parallel communities from across the larger umbrella of mathematics professions. In addition to doing math, reflecting on practice, and developing capacity as a teacher leader, both formal and informal interactions connect teachers to research mathematicians, mathematics university faculty, undergraduate & graduate students, and thought leaders addressing equity in mathematics education.
Eligible applicants must teach secondary mathematics at least 50% of the time and be returning to the classroom in the fall of 2023. If selected, there is a registration fee of $750 which is offset by a $500 honorarium and $205 meal allowance. In addition, travel, shared housing, opening reception, closing dinner and M-F breakfast & lunch are included along with all programmatic aspects of the institute. There are a limited number of scholarships available based on financial need. Next summer’s institute will take place from July 16th to August 5th.
In addition to the teacher program, the broader math education community might also find the Workshop on Rehumanizing Mathematics to be of interest. The Workshop is directed by Rochelle Gutierrez, happens during the first two of PCMI, and is focussed on supporting participants in developing a project to be implemented in their own work setting.
The Institute for Advanced Study serves as an institutional home for PCMI, and information about the two programs listed above can be found here on their website:
Applications are due January 15th and can be accessed here:
There is a Youtube video posted as an explainer from a few years ago here:
