We are pleased to announce the opening of registration for the 2014 Best Teachers Institute (June 18-20, 2014),
A Three-day institute based on Ken Bain's award-winning and best selling book What the Best College Teachers Do (Harvard University Press, 2004), and featuring some of the subjects of the 15-year study of excellence in college education. Institute combines resources of Northwestern University, University of Virginia, Rhode Island School of Design, Assumption College, Vanderbilt University, and Best Teachers Institute.
This year's program will also feature ideas from Ken Bain's new book What the Best College Students Do (Harvard University Press, 2012). Both books won the Virginia and Warren Stone Prize for an Outstanding Book on Education and Society (2004 and 2012)

Recent years' programs included participants from six continents, two dozen countries, and 47 states, from large and small schools, open admission and highly selective institutions, universities and community colleges, undergraduate, professional, and graduate schools, creating a rich diversity of ideas and experiences. Come join the conversation.
