The MI Institute is identifying many wonderful teacher candidates through the Teacher Certification Program, in addition to being in touch with many MI educators and schools around the world.   

Thus, we have set up this Job Forum to help connect  MI-inspired educators with MI schools. 



If you are looking for "MI-minded" educators for your school or program, we encourage you  to post the position(s) here, to assist in your search for an educator  who has interest and experience with MI.



If you are an MI-minded educator in search of a related position, check out the job postings here.

------------------------------------------

In order to avoid future disputes, we would like to make a few rules to this forum:



- This forum is for job posting only.  Please do not post your resume, cover letter, or other personal messages in this forum.



- Please specify your contact information when making a job posting so the candidates can contact you directly.  The Institute will not be able to forward job requests.



-If you are a job-seeker, please contact the job-poster, not MI Institute regarding the position.



- The Institute is not responsible for the quality of the job posting or the subsequent application process.  Please perform research on the school before you apply.



- For all participants who have completed the MII courses or certification program, please feel free to contact the Institute regarding job recommendations.



Thank you for participating and happy job hunting!

What Makes a School (Classroom, Program) an "MI School (Classroom, Program)"?"



There's no right answer to this question, but as Dr. Gardner notes, "There are programs that are more or less 'in the spirit' of MI theory. 



What do you consider to be 'in the spirit' of MI? 

Howard Gardner suggests that the basic application of MI involves engaging learners in key topics, content, concepts, domains in a variety of ways; and individualization.  If  you look at the hundreds , if not thousands, of MI programs, you'll see great diversity. Do the quality, successful  programs address these two practices?



This forum is a space for you to share and discuss:

1) Applications of MI theory from the perspective of "How is this 'in the spirit of MI'?

  Let's get to a deeper understanding of MI theory, as well as its application, by exploring how it's been interpreted and put to use.





2) Research questions and projects related to MI applications



3) Your questions about applying MI theory. 

Through this forum, you may connect with someone with the same question or with a response-in-practice.



4) Your thoughts about MI practices that Forum monitors share in this Forum.

A major thrust  of the MI Institute’s work is providing  educators  with engaging and effective professional development about MI theory and practice . Toward that end, this forum addresses the issue of quality professional development that advances the understanding and application of MI theory. 



We have many questions that we'd love you to address and discuss, and we list them below.  That being said, we encourage you to bring your own questions, concerns, recommendations regarding excellent professional development, generally and specifically about MI.



Some of our questions regarding professional development:



What IS engaging, effective MI professional development (PD)?  (big, "throughline" question)

How can professional development be fun AND substantive?

What do people want to learn about MI in practice?

What are the questions "MI educators" have that PD should address?





We (MII) look forward to discussion professional development with you here and getting your ideas and feedback, so that we can develop professional development that works that you want!

The “Ask Howard” forum is a vehicle for you to post  your burning questions to Howard Gardner about MI theory and  practice.    We will post Dr. Gardner's responses to selected questions.  



You're encouraged to respond to and discuss questions posted by your colleagues (or yourself).  Regardless of Dr. Gardner's posts, we will all learn from your questions and the exchanges they engender.  



We look forward to your questions...and responses!

One of the most common requests we get from educators is the need of MI related curriculum and activities.  Therefore, we have created the curriculum forum where you can share your experiences in the classroom.  We hope this forum can be a useful resource for you to run different activities that relate to particular sets of intelligences in the future.  To further enrich the contents, we have invited Ms. Londi Carbajal, a seasoned educator with over 20 years of experience in early education, to facilitate the discussions.  We look forward to reading your posts!
