AP Summer Institute Course Information

In-Person Courses

In-person courses require 30 hours of engagement to receive the certificate at the end of the APSI week. These hours are divided into lectures and individual and group work. Our classrooms for APSI are equipped with a projector system, a web cam, and whiteboards. Science labs, which have a more limited seating capacity, are also equipped like other classrooms. Participants can log in to the campus wifi as a guest or through their Goucher student credentials.

Coffee and lunch are provided for each day of the APSI week.

Online Courses

Online courses require the same 30 hours of engagement to receive the certificate at the end of the APSI week. These hours are divided into synchronous and asynchronous sessions and independent and group work. The daily schedule for online courses may change depending on the AP consultant facilitating the course and the time zones of participants. Any changes are agreed upon by all by no later than the first day of the week.


Learning Management System (LMS)

At Goucher College, we use Canvas as our learning management system. Canvas is available for each APSI course and is utilized for online courses as well as in-person courses. On Canvas you’ll find the digital College Board materials available for download, the syllabus for the course, other materials provided by the AP Consultant, assignments and more.

Once your registration is approved, within a few weeks you will receive an email with your Goucher credentials which will give you access to Canvas, Teams, and a student email account. AP courses on Canvas will be available to view starting in May.

Starting in 2024, we will be using Microsoft Teams for virtual class meetings or other video conferencing sessions. Prior to the start of the APSI week, we suggest becoming familiar with how to use Teams. A quick guide for students can be found online at https://blogs.goucher.edu/knowledgebase/2024/01/08/using-microsoft-teams-as-a-student/.
