If you are a new instructor learning the craft or a seasoned faculty member in search of renewal, the Faculty Development Summer Institute (FDSI) is right for you.

Held since 1984 on beautiful Prince Edward Island, FDSI is facilitated by three 3M National Teaching Fellows. It brings together instructors in post-secondary education at all levels to learn about and share evidence-based strategies to engage students in their own learning.

One of the longest-running institutes of its kind in North America, FDSI has hosted hundreds of participants from Canadian, American, and overseas colleges and universities. The Institute follows the arc of a course, from first class to last, through a range of active learning strategies from simple to complex. 

Prince Edward Island offers an idyllic getaway just before the hectic fall term begins. We hope you will join us – and think about staying on to experience PEI at its best.
