The Ecology School Teacher Institute

Professional development for Education Professionals

For 20 years, The Ecology School has been creating innovative and immersive environmental educational programming that is rooted in students’ natural inclination to explore, be curious, laugh, and play. In our three- to four-day programs, education professionals will learn (and practice!) the inner workings of our unique, and highly successful, pedagogy.

Live and learn within a community of educational professionals at our Teacher Institute. Throughout the experience you’ll focus on using the school yard as a teaching tool, applying STEM concepts with ecology, and linking indoor inquiry-based classroom explorations as well as outdoor discovery to classroom curriculum design. Participants will practice new skills and application of concepts during the Teacher Institute, allowing space to work with The Ecology School staff and fellow educators to hone proficiency, develop comfort with new methods, and ask questions. Education professionals will leave with a plan of action to bring ecology to life in their own teaching environments!

Participants will be treated to farm-fresh, local, and nutritious foods during family-style meals, and comfortable accommodations during rest hours, housed in our new Living Building dining commons and dormitory.
