If you don't see a workshop on the education and teacher training workshops calendar that meets your needs, ask us to set up a workshop for you. Here's how.

Contact the PLT coordinator to discuss the following:

  1. Type of workshop
    • Examples of workshop themes:
      • How to Teach Outside
      • Invasive Species in Minnesota
      • Addressing academic standards with environmental education
      • Use PLT with preschoolers
      • Introduction to environmental education and PLT for pre-service instructors
      • Use PLT for place-based education
      • Use PLT with Projects WILD, WET, or MinnAqua.
  2. Workshop audience
    • The workshop audience can be teachers, colleagues, naturalists, scout leaders, or other groups.
  3. Workshop location
    • Locations can vary. Workshops may be offered at schools, nature centers, colleges and universities, or other locations.
  4. Workshop costs
    • Costs vary, but we work to keep them affordable. Average workshops cost anywhere from $20 to $80 per participant.
      • You may contact a local sponsor or speak with the PLT coordinator for other possibilities.
      • We can offer graduate credits through Hamline University's Center for Global and Environmental Education. Twelve classroom hours and a homework project are required to earn one graduate credit. To set up graduate credit, speak with the PLT coordinator.
