1:21 p.m., Feb. 1, 2012--The Delaware Teachers Institute (DTI), which offers K-12 educators in New Castle County a unique professional development opportunity, will hold its second annual open house for interested teachers on Monday, Feb. 13, from 4:30-6 p.m., in the Puglisi Orchestra Hall of the Roselle Center for the Arts on the University of Delaware campus in Newark.

Composed of small groups of K-12 teachers, DTI offers seminars on academic topics that teachers have identified as being most relevant to their instructional needs.  Teachers, in turn, collaborate with colleagues and their UD seminar leaders (professors) to produce standards-based curriculum units that are rich in content and effective in pedagogy.
