Event description

Description

The GTM Research Reserve's invites you to participate in our Teacher on the Estuary Training (TOTE) for the summer of 2019!

Who

Open to all regional middle and high school teachers and informal educators.

This professional development opportunity is a 4-day workshop. Participants are required to attend at least 2 days of the workshop, but are encouraged and welcome to attend all 4. Teachers participating in the TOTE will also automatically have the $140 program fee waived for the academic year!

Topic

We will be focusing on how to communicate data to a variety of student audiences in a way that is effective and easily understood regardless of previous exposure, lack of resources, or limitations.

  • Day 1 will introduce participants to the GTM Research Reserve's "living laboratory" and how we interpret our research and monitoring data to students.
  • Day 2 will focus on providing programming to students limited by distance and transportation, including a highlight of our new virtual reality program.
  • Day 3 will focus on interpreting our programs and data to students who are blind and deaf
  • Day 4 will focus on interpreting our programs and data to students with autism spectrum related disorders and cognitive disabilities.

Cost

There is no cost for this event. We will provide a $50 stipend after completion, as well as breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

CEU's

We are working with school districts for approval of CEU's.
