Teacher Workshops

We believe that training and updating educators on resource issues and topics is critical to a greater understanding of the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem. The Glacier Institute offers periodic teacher workshops on various topics in its schedule of courses. All workshops incorporate experts in a variety of fields related to the workshop's topic. In addition, participants are given numerous tools and resources to bring back to the classroom.

2013 Teacher Workshop Opportunities

This year, we are partnering with Glacier National Park to educate teachers and their students about climate change and its impacts within and around Glacier National Park. This is our second year hosting a teacher workshop focused on climate change. To view service learning projects and lesson plan ideas from our 2012 workshop, visit the National Park Foundation's Parks Climate Challenge Program website. You can also find links to resources and tools for teaching national park centric climate change lessons throughout the Parks Climate Challenge Program website.

The 2013 Climate Change Teacher Workshop will be held from June 24-27 and is based out of our Field Camp, located inside the park boundary in West Glacier. We are currently soliciting applications for this workshop. Participation is limited to 20 teachers and applicants must teach at the middle or high school level. Workshop attendees will receive 32 Office of Public Instruction renewal units (university credit is pending). For more information, download the Workshop Description or contact us. If you would like to apply, please click on the "Climate Change Teacher Workshop Application" link below. All applications must be submitted by Friday, March 22, 2013.
