About this Event
Since 2007, Auburn University has hosted over 1,800 high school teachers at the AP® Summer Institute, or APSI. Offered by the Office of Professional and Continuing Education in partnership with the College Board, APSI is designed to aid the professional development of teachers, counselors and administrators who are involved with Advanced Placement (AP®) courses.
Auburn University will again host Advanced Placement (AP) teachers this summer for in-person and virtual sessions. Workshops are designed for new and experienced AP teachers. Topics include subject matter content, test construction, pupil and teacher selection, College Board policies and procedures, and preparation and grading of AP tests. Workshops offered include English Literature and Composition, English Language and Composition, US History, Government and Politics, World History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science and Computer Science Principles.
Auburn University is one of only two locations within the state of Alabama for AP teachers to receive training to be certified as Advanced Placement instructors. Offered each summer and endorsed by College Board, APSI workshops are designed for teachers who are teaching an Advanced Placement course for the first time and for experienced teachers desiring refresher training.
Representing school districts from all over Alabama and the southeast, OPCE provides AP materials, curriculum guidelines, and exam material required for AP teacher certification. University partners including the College of Sciences and Mathematics and the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences generously provide classroom space, lab space and technical resources for AP topic areas.
