This event was formerly titled "The Institute for Ethical Education Leaders." CSEE has changed the name to more clearly reflect what the Institute covers.
Please note: dorm rooms in the female wing are full. There are still dorms in the men's wing. We still have space for day-only attendees.
CSEE Member School Faculty: $1145 (includes room and board) or $595 (day-only, includes lunch)
Non-Members: $1495 (includes room and board) or $795 (day-only, includes lunch)
About this Event
With leadership from nationally recognized experts in the field, this five-day workshop mixes presentation, discussion, and school goal development to prepare participants to guide top-quality ethical/character education initiatives in their schools. Key presenters this year are Larry Nucci, Ph.D., from UC Berkeley's graduate school of education, specializing in children's social and moral development, and Marilyn Watson, Ph.D., former director of programs at the Developmental Studies Center, Oakland, and author of Discipline for Moral Growth and Learning to Trust. The agenda below is tentative. The event will be balanced such that it is equally applicable to Lower, Middle and Upper School educators.
