PD Opportunity: Population Education Train-the-Trainer Institute

25 Feb 2022 1:08 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Since 1990, Population Education has been hosting train-the-trainer Institutes to prepare educators to facilitate workshops using our hands-on activities. During the Institute, we will:

  • Demonstrate a range of teaching activities 
  • Share presentation ideas and facilitation strategies 
  • Discuss the many social and ecological issues related to population growth and resource use 

The learning sessions and materials are designed to prepare educators to present Population Education workshops to teachers and future teachers. The Institute is a must for:

  • Science, social studies, and math education faculty
  •  Nonformal educators who work with teachers at zoos, nature centers, and science centers 
  • K-12 teachers and curriculum specialists who present professional development workshops

Participants Will Receive

  • An extensive handbook of training materials 
  • The latest edition of our award-winning “dot” video, World Population 
  • Gift bag full of Population Education curricula

All Costs Covered

For those chosen to attend the Institute, Population Connection will cover two nights lodging in a private room at the Warren Conference Center and Inn for Friday and Saturday, as well as all meals for the weekend. A travel reimbursement of up to $500 will be available.
