Description In this seven-week virtual workshop, participants will explore the theory and application of Place-Based Education to support student engagement and high-level learning. They will gain practical skills and tools to engage with their local community, guide students through inquiry and design processes, and build learner-centered, interdisciplinary lessons and units. The workshop will be offered by Monmouth College in partnership with Teton Science Schools, a non-profit educational organization and leader in place-based education for 60 years. The workshop will be split into three sections: Part 1: Introduction to Place-Based Education (week 1), Part 2: Placed-Based Education principles and tools (weeks 2-4), and Part 3: Place-Based lesson design and development (weeks 5-7). Participants will engage in weekly readings, synchronous collaborative discussions and hands-on experiences to reflect on their teaching practices, plan for future instruction, and develop their professional learning communities. Participants can anticipate spending 20 hours on course activities over the seven weeks.
