The New Literacies Teacher Leader Institute (NLI) was created in 2009 by a group of literacy professors from four universities and initially launched at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at NC State University. The group of professors worked collectively to design the NLI professional development model, which is based on the principles of new media literacies, project-based inquiry (PBI), and technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). Through a capacity building framework, self-sustaining follow-up institutes are being launched nationally and internationally. The founding creators of the New Literacies Teacher Leader Institute are: Dr. Hiller A. Spires, Dr. John Lee, Dr. Carol Young, Dr. Donald Leu, Dr. Julie Coiro, Dr. Jill Castek
