Workshops & Professional Learning

USEE facilitates and schedules many professional development workshops with their multidisciplinary environmental education curriculum programs geared for non-formal and preK-12 educators.

Each curriculum program features many easy-to-use, hands-on, multidisciplinary activities that are designed to compliment existing curricula rather than displace or add additional concepts. The activities can be used in both classroom and informal settings and can easily be adapted to meet the learning requirements for academic disciplines ranging from science and environmental education to social studies, math, and language arts. Educators may choose one or more activities to teach a concept or skill, integrate them into existing courses of study, or an entire set of activities may serve effectively as the basis for a specific course.

USEE’s Professional Development Workshops train educators:

  • In environmental education
  • How best to use the provided curriculum materials
  • How to enhance (NOT reinvent) their current curriculum
  • How to integrate multiple subjects for a single activity
  • How to engage with and draw upon their community in learning about and taking action to address local environmental issues

All activities have been correlated to the Utah State Core Curriculum Standards, as well as national science, social studies, and environmental education standards. 

All workshops are eligible for USBE Credit.
