The Delaware Teachers Institute (DTI) is an educational partnership between the University of Delaware and five New Castle County school districts. The Institute is designed to strengthen teaching and learning in the community’s high need public schools through content rich professional development seminars taught by University of Delaware faculty.
The geospatial seminar provided teachers an opportunity to develop their understanding of how to create and access geospatial data as a tool for disciplinary instruction. DTI fellows used knowledge acquired during the seminar to develop new teaching materials for their classroom and their cohorts. These teaching resources are currently available via the DTI website.
