GLOBE Workshops - Professional Development for Teachers
For educators who are interested in helping students learn more about the ecology of the Upper Valley and contributing to a collective understanding of the key processes which keep it healthy, please join us for an exciting new series of place-based education workshops. The National Park Service is partnering with the Shelburne Farms and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GLOBE program to offer educator professional development in environmental data collection protocols designed for K-12 students. Extensive opportunities exist to collaborate locally as well as internationally. Explore ways to engage students in authentic investigations, reflection, problem-solving, and sharing their work publicly to strengthen students’ sense of efficacy and their abilities to create healthier lives and communities.
