A New Online Professional Learning Series for Educators
Teachers and non-formal educators are invited to return 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 on the issues they teach in the classroom,” said Eileen Boekestein, environmental education coordinator at EGLE. “It 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 program staff, plenty of time for questions and answers, and educational resources for educators to take back to their classrooms. . Participants must be willing to actively participate.
Registration for the first three sessions is open now on the EnviroSchool website.
All webinars will be recorded and posted to the EGLE classroom. Educators who attend live online will be eligible to receive 1.5 SCECH. (SCECHs are not available for viewing recordings.)
