We know that there are many teachers who have adapted the Exploring a Sense of Place program to enhance the experience of their students of any age. We are happy to announce that teachers anywhere can now earn professional development credits for a new “My Sense of Place Series,” offered online by Dominican University, in San Rafael CA!
As described in the latest catalog:
“This series will help you connect deeply with the nature of the place where you live, as well as to be able to provide an experience for your students. It is also an opportunity to rediscover the joy of learning as you familiarize yourself with your bioregion. It will require some research, as well as trips outdoors which can be as local as your school campus, city or regional parks.”
This is a wonderful opportunity for teachers to deepen their own relationship with the nature of their local bioregion, and to develop a program to enrich the experience of their students. As a bonus, they get continuing education credits for it, too! Please spread the word!
