About Teacher Workshops

Teachers throughout Ohio and the surrounding region are invited to participate in one-day Ping Institute workshops for high school humanities teachers. The workshops—offered on Saturday during the academic year—are sometimes organized in conjunction with the School of Theater at Ohio University so that participants have the opportunity to attend a performance of the play under discussion.
