Please let me know if I can provide the information in a different format or edited in a different manner.
Environmental Learning Institute and Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship
Foundation is fielding professional development workshops in British Columbia, Canada. This summer 2005 workshop offers intermediate-secondary science educators opportunities to learn more about inquiry-based science education philosophy, pedagogy and
praxis and global environmental change while learning about a threatened North American ecosystem of global significance. Each course has a dual tract structure in biology and geology allowing the participant to
specialize in their discipline of interest. Geology and biology faculty supervise all courses. We invite applications from appropriate pre-service & in-service teachers, education and environment graduate
student, science education professors (teacher of teachers) and science education professionals (e.g. park, museum and outdoor center affiliated).
The workshops are possible due to the support of the Environmental Learning Institute (www.environmentallearning.org), Woodrow Wilson
National Fellowship Foundation, the New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology Masters in Science Teaching Program and the Colorado School of
Mines Teacher Enhancement Program.
For more information about these professional development opportunities please visit the Environmental Learning Institute TORCH website

Recertification and graduate science credits available. We can arrange for you to talk with previous participants.
Partial course fee fellowships available.
