The Mediterranean Center for Innovation in Education is hosting a series of short, two-and-a-half day institutes this July in Sotogrande, Spain.   Each institute is a stand-alone experience, allowing participants to delve deeply into an engaging concept related to transforming learning in the 21st century.
