Population Education is excited to announce the launch of its first online professional development course for science and social studies educators of grades 6-12. Discover student-centered learning strategies that use contemporary issues and real-world data to examine the social and environmental impacts of human population and engage in meaningful dialogue with teachers across the world. If you teach Environmental Science, World Geography, Human Geography, Biology/Life Science, World History, or the AP counterparts, this course is perfect for you! The course is asynchronous, which means students can work at their own leisure and pace. There will be online discussion boards, journals and a final project, all built to provide students with meaningful feedback and materials to use within their own classroom.
Teachers can choose to earn one hour of graduate education credit from the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) or 45.00 professional development clock hours (4.5 CEUs) for successfully completing the full eight weeks.
Class size will be capped at 30 participants, so don’t wait to sign up. The cost will be $80.00 to earn 4.5 CEUs or $155.00 (for credit) + $80.00 (for CEUs) to earn credit through UMKC. For more information and to register, visit https://courses.populationeducation.org.
