    Field trips provide wonderful experiences for students to learn outside of the classroom, but they can take a lot of work to plan!  Let Omaha's Zoo & Aquarium help make the experience even more meaningful for you and your students.  In this workshop, we will go beyond the tried and true scavenger hunt and explore ways to connect a Zoo field trip to classroom curriculum, prepare you and your students for the experience, and how to follow-up back in the classroom.  This Educator Workshop for elementary educators.

    Saturday, February 16
    9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
    $20 (includes lunch)

    Reflecting on Practice Professional Development

    Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium is excited to host a professional development workshop specifically geared to informal educators.  Reflecting on Practice: A Professional Learning Program for Informal STEM Educators (RoP) will be offered at the Zoo March 19-21, 2019.  Discuss, reflect, and apply current research on learning and teaching to advance your organization’s mission and enhance visitor experiences. Reflecting on Practice Professional Development

    The Coaching Workshop is designed for managers, coordinators or department leaders who want to implement Reflecting on Practice for educators (staff or volunteers) at their own institution. It is highly recommended that two or more leaders from an institution participate in the workshop. During the workshop participants will have:

    • A complete curriculum guide, implementation models and some supporting materials
    • Connections with other informal (science) educators who plan to implement RoP
    • Help customizing the implementation models for their institution and needs
    • Continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks each day
    • Ongoing assistance to ensure successful implementation of the program and continued connection with RoP peers

     

    With funding from NSF, this three-day workshop is only $50 per participant (valued at $500).  Please see the attached flyer for more information.  To register click here.
