Program Details and Presenters for SSI 2021

SENCER Summer Institute Program  (All Times EASTERN)



Welcome to SSI 2021!  Since we offered an on-line program for the second consecutive year, we are responding to some feedback from last year’s program regarding the “density” and number of concurrent events.  This year there were no concurrent programs—only one event per time slot—and we have stretched the meeting out over more than two weeks to accommodate both presenters and audiences.  The Panels and other presentations will be recorded, so that they can be experienced both synchronously and asynchronously.  We are also focusing more on two-day workshops to provide a more immersive professional development experience for those who have requested it.  It is our sincere hope that we can (someday!) return to face-to-face programming, and some of our regional SENCER Centers are making plans for one-day gatherings that will be face-to-face, but we are also happy to support online workshops and conferences by our members, and we will be reporting on some successful examples in the opening plenary.

General Information:  On-line program will be offered via ZOOM. Registrants will receive zoom links for program by August 4.  Panels will be recorded and available on-line to all registrants during and after the Institute.  Workshops will use google docs for collaborative activities (so please make sure you have an account!)

Registration:  Members received reduced registration rate of 50.00 (or free to lifetime members). Register here:
