Teacher Professional Development Programs

By: Inside Education

Inside Education’s Teacher Professional Development Programs provide career-changing experiential learning opportunities for school teachers, community educators and career counselors. Since the first program in 1991, nearly 3,000 Alberta teachers have been immersed in the science, technology, issues and futures surrounding Alberta’s precious water, forest and energy resources. Visiting places like Fort McKay in the north and Pincher Creek in the south, Inside Education provides full-scholarship learning opportunities for educators across the province. The teachers learn from experts in Alberta industry, government, academia, the environmental community and Alberta’s Aboriginal peoples. Once the teachers see and experience the province, they take a bias-balanced, multiple perspective approach back to their classrooms and challenge the hundreds of students they impact annually to be critical thinkers and tomorrow’s environmental stewards.
