2020 Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI)

The AP® Summer Institute (APSI) Workshop is endorsed by College Board and designed to aid the professional development of teachers, counselors, and administrators who are involved with Advanced Placement (AP®) courses. Workshops are designed for teachers who are teaching an Advanced Placement course for the first time and for experienced teachers desiring refresher training. Topics include subject matter content, test construction, pupil and teacher selection, College Board policies and procedures, and preparation and grading of AP tests.

All workshop instructors will be College Board Endorsed Consultants who have current information regarding AP® policies, including updates on any exam changes that may be occurring. All classes will be conducted on the campus of Auburn University. Specific classroom locations will be announced when that information becomes finalized.
