German teachers are invited to participate in the BYU German Teachers Summer Institute. The main purpose of the institute is to help German teachers in the public schools refresh, improve, or develop abilities in German culture, teaching, and language. The institute will include three weeks of online coursework and approximately three weeks of travel in Vienna. In Austria, we will live in Vienna and go on excursions outside of Vienna. Participants may arrange to bring a spouse to the in-Austria segment.
Each day, participants will meet as a group to learn about the history and culture of Vienna, to increase their proficiency in German, and to create plans to teach their own students. We will learn about art (Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Belvedere, and Albertina Museum), natural history (Naturhistorisches Museum), cultural history (Hofburg Palace, the Sisi Museum, and Schönbrunn Palace), architecture (Stephansdom, Karlskirche, Jesuitenkirche, Peterskirche, Augustinekirche, and Stift Melk), music (attend an opera and the Elisabeth musical), and food (Schnitzelwirt, Tichy Marillen Eisknödel, Sacher Hotel, and Cafe Central).
