continuing education credits

PEARLL is able to offer Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) from the University of Maryland for participants who successfully complete all tasks assigned during a summer institute. Each institute qualifies for 1.5 CEU’s. Registration for CEU’s will incur an additional $25 charge.

Registration for a PEARLL summer institute is on a non-credit basis, however a professional development certificate for 15 hours will be available upon completion for all participants and is included in the regular registration fee.

cancellation policy

PEARLL will confirm institutes no later than 14 days prior to their scheduled starting date.

PEARLL will only confirm your institute registration after receiving full payment.

If PEARLL has not received sufficient confirmed registrations 14 days in advance of a scheduled starting date, the institute may be cancelled. In the unlikely event that the institute is cancelled, PEARLL will notify all confirmed participants immediately, and all participants will receive a full refund.

If a participant chooses to cancel their confirmed registration or does not attend the institute, the following refunds will apply:

research announcement

As a participant in a PEARLL summer institute, you will have the opportunity to take part in a study examining the impact of the summer institute on teachers. Participation in the study will include completing a few surveys, and may include participating in an interview about your views of the material addressed in the summer institute. We will provide more information about this study prior to your summer institute.
