Each summer, the Teaching Institute in Museum Education (TIME) at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) offers a select group of art museum educators from across the country the opportunity to participate in an inspiring professional development experience. TIME participants discover, discuss, and engage in new gallery teaching practices and share museum experiences in an environment that is both supportive and challenging. TIME is hosted by SAIC and the Art Institute of Chicago.

The TIME seminar program is built upon these guiding principles:

TIME includes observation and study of works of art in the Art Institute of Chicago; discussions on current theories and practices in gallery teaching; presentations by leading art historians, curators, museum educators, and visiting artists; and a survey of the literature and history of American museum education.

TIME is led by:

TIME is generously funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
