Teachers and nonformal educators are invited back to the classroom with a new online professional learning opportunity from EGLE Classroom called EnviroSchool.
The EnviroSchool webinar series gives educators the opportunity to learn directly from EGLE staff about their areas of expertise and their daily work to protect our environment.
“EnviroSchool will allow Michigan educators to interact directly with environmental professionals around the issues they’re teaching about in the classroom,” said Eileen Boekestein, EGLE’s environmental education coordinator. “This gives teachers real-world information that makes environmental science more relevant and learning opportunities richer for students.”
The EnviroSchool learning series will take place monthly from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., beginning September 21. Each online session will include a presentation from EGLE’s program staff, plenty of time for Q&A, and curricular resources that educators can take back to their classrooms. Participants should come prepared to actively participate.
Registration for the first three sessions is open now on the EnviroSchool website.
All webinars will be recorded and posted to EGLE Classroom. Educators who attend online live will be eligible to receive 1.5 SCECHs. (SCECHs are not available for viewing recordings.)
