Our Summer Institute is a professional development opportunity designed to share best practices in mastery-based learning and social-emotional learning directly from our own teachers at Khan Lab School (KLS). 
The KLS Summer Institute offers participants an opportunity to present their ideas, learn more about the KLS approach to learning, and work with KLS educators to test new workable solutions to bring back to their school communities.
