Event description

Description

North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) and Vermont State Wide Environmental Education Program (SWEEP) are offering a Professional Development Opportunity for Educators !

Do you want to incorporate engaging and fun environmental education into your current curriculum?

Join Vermont State-wide Environmental Education Programs and Susan Cox, a U.S. Forest Service Educator, to learn about the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) Guidelines for Excellence in Education. We will dive into the Guidelines for Excellence in K-12 Environmental Education and discuss their application in education in Vermont. We’ll also take a look at the suite of NAAEE guidelines and resources available to educators to make connections and build great environmental education programs. This workshop will help you integrate high quality, standards-based instruction that focuses on environmental and outdoor education techniques. All Kindergarten through Grade 12 educators, formal and non-formal, are invited to this fun and productive professional development opportunity.

This workshop will take place at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) Nature Center from 10:00am-2:00pm. Lunch is provided and all participants will receive a NAAEE Guidelines for Excellence in Education: Best Practices in K-12 Environmental Education guide.

A registration fee of $10.00 is charged to offset the cost of this workshop. We never want finances to be a barrier for participation and do have limited scholarships available. If the $10.00 cost creates a barrier, please select the "Full Workshop Scholarship" ticket to attend free of charge.


In addition to the workshop, please consider also joining us for our Vermont SWEEP Fall Gathering immediately following from 3:00-5:00pm at VINS! We'll enjoy refreshments and networking with representatives from many of Vermont's Environmental Education programs and educators across the state. We welcome new participants (all educators are welcome). Get to know the variety of schools, organizations, and individuals in our area working to educate about and for the environment! We'll also share announcements about upcoming events and opportunities.


Pre-Registration is Required. Please Register by Friday, September 20th.
