Professional Development Workshops

Updated April 3, 2018

 

Assume registration is required for all workshops and activities

Category 1 workshops must provide a manual or materials that support the workshop objectives, contain significant content, have age appropriate instructional activities, and offer suggestions for integration with Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Math, Art and/or Music. If your workshop has already been certified for college credit, or has been certified by another outdoor, naturalist, environmental or interpretive program, it qualifies for Category 1. Please include information on where it has been certified. If it has not been certified, click here for a form to have your workshop reviewed or contact Jan Weaver at weaverjc@missouri.edu for assistance.

Category 2 workshops are structured out-of-door experiences, led by a qualified instructor. An individual workshop can count for up to 10 hours of certification.

Category 3 workshops provide information on the theory, practice and history of environmental education or cover current issues or concerns, and provide access to EE resources. This category includes conferences and seminars. An individual workshop should be between 2 and 10 hours.
