Our Climate, Our Communities: Science, Systems, and Solutions

How can we help you prepare your students to engage with the complex concepts and rapidly developing issues related to climate change? Through the broad phenomenon-based theme of Our Climate, Our Communities: Science, Systems, and Solutions, you will explore examples of best practices in climate change education. During this academic year professional development institute, experience a hybrid format of in-person and online learning that provides opportunities for you to engage in climate and energy investigations, work directly with scientists and engineers, explore regional resources, and develop units and investigations you can use in your classroom. Leave the course with tools and resources for integrating climate change concepts into your instruction and the confidence to engage your students in active discussion and problem solving around challenging and dynamic topics of climate change.
