What We Do

Committed to Professional Learners

The University of Texas at San Antonio is committed to providing educational continuity to all educators seeking the Advanced Placement (AP®) skillset. To affirm this commitment, we are excited to announce our portfolio of AP® workshops will now be offered, for the first time, in an online modality. All workshops will be delivered live-online and provide the same transformative content as face-to-face instruction.

The Advanced Placement® Summer Institute (APSI) is administered by UTSA Extended Education and endorsed by the Southwestern Region of the College Board. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of instruction in an online environment, and to prepare educators to guide students toward a successful college experience! We work diligently to bring together AP College Board certified consultants and teachers from around the world to attend the APSI.

Extended Education is now in its eleventh year conducting the AP Summer Institute. In those years, we have welcomed thousands of educators who are passionate about their profession. We are proud to serve as a learning destination for the educational leaders of our youth.

In 2019, the UTSA APSI held twenty-five workshops and welcomed over 600 educators during the three summer sessions. The quality of UTSA’s APSI and the spirit of the beautiful city of San Antonio attracted participants from across the globe: teachers from as far away as France, China and Korea were in attendance.

APSI Online: How it Works

UTSA’s AP Summer Institutes have transitioned to an online experience for all 2020 AP workshops.

Workshop Structure

Workshops are a combination of synchronous (live instruction) and asynchronous (not live, independent) online learning.

Workshop Schedule

To meet the College Board requirement of 30 contact hours, workshops have been extended to five days, Monday through Friday. Attendance is taken.

Online Platform

Participants will use Microsoft TEAMS, a communication and collaboration platform. TEAMS integrates the people, content, and tools you'll need to engage.

Participant Experience

The hours required to complete the live-online instruction portion of the workshop have been taken into consideration and participants will be given breaks between daily sessions.

Workshop Agenda

We are working closely with our instructors in the design and implementation of online workshops. Participants will presented with an updated agenda once finalized.

Required Equipment

To effectively engage in the instruction, participants will need a computer, Internet connection, and video webcam (required to participate in the live-online portion).
