EcoRise offers year-round face-to-face and online professional development for teachers

Rooted in design thinking and project-based learning, EcoRise professional development introduces teachers to our curriculum, the Eco-Audit Grant process, and instructional best practices. Our innovative, hands-on trainings challenge participants to reconsider their assumptions, take risks, and think out of the box, in support of specific learning objectives.

Every training is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of the participants. While the content and form may vary depending on the topic and site, each training will be creative, applicable, participatory, and results-oriented. Participants leave energized, having developed a concrete action plan that includes specific next steps and benchmarks.

Getting to hear the experiences of other teachers taking on curriculum challenges and respond together to the training activities provided by EcoRise was some of the most useful professional development time I've spent this year.
