Faculty learning groups meet on a regular basis to delve into topics of mutual interest and share best practices. Current learning group topics include: Digital Curation, Research, Making Across the Curriculum, Teaching and Learning with Gender in Mind, Nature Walk and Talk.
A long-standing partnership with Harvard University Graduate School of Education's Project Zero and generous grants from the Edward E. Ford Foundation led to the establishment (in 2013) of the WIS Summer Institute for Teachers. This one-week program invites DC-area public and private school educators to collaborate and learn from each other.
The success of WISSIT and related programs encouraged WIS to create the Professional Development Collaborative @ WIS. This non-profit organization partners with local organizations and schools to deliver programs and events that ultimately benefit thousands of students.
