Teacher Trainings

Be Inspired by Alaska's Wild Classrooms

teachersjpgShare methods, tools, and curriculum for classroom learning with other teachers from Alaska and nationwide. Earn 1-3 professional development credits from the University of Alaska as you explore Alaska by foot or kayak.

Teacher Trainings are led by Alaska’s best naturalists, geologists, and wildlife biologists, plus experienced educators. We take care of the lodging and transportation so you can focus on bringing Alaska’s forests, mountains, and tundra back to your classroom. Every ecosystem and classroom is unique, so each Teacher Training is custom-designed. Scholarships are available for teachers attending courses in Denali National Park and Preserve.

Information about 2014 courses will be available by December 1.
