Teacher Workshop: The Nature of Kids and Kids in Nature

June 24, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - June 28, 2019 @ 3:00 pm

The Nature of Kids and Kids in Nature is a 4.5-day professional development workshop designed to help educators learn to recognize, understand and manage the multiple factors that influence student learning styles and to leverage the power of “learning in nature” to enhance student learning outcomes.

Through mini-lectures, video clips, case studies and authentic experiences in the National Park, participants will investigate the many factors that impact student performance and will gain practical ideas that can be implemented immediately in their classrooms (both inside and outside) to enhance instruction and assessment. Participants will become more resourceful practitioners offering improved classroom climate and morale and realizing increased student engagement.

Primarily designed for teachers K-grade 8, but high school teachers are welcome.  

Registration fee includes instruction, materials (binders with content information), daily lunch and snacks.

Optional Graduate Credit Available: Ashland University $180/Credit Hour. Course offers 2 Credit Hours.
