Discovery Hall Programs (DHP) provides professional development opportunities for teachers and informal educators through single day and multi-day workshops.

Workshops include experiences outside in the field, presentations, and discussions with research faculty, and time to explore relevant lesson plans and activities to take back to the classroom.

Workshops are developed with the Alabama Course of Study standards, Ocean Literacy Principles, and Climate Literacy Principles in mind, ensuring that they remain relevant to educators’ teaching needs. 

All DHP workshops provide professional development hours for maintaining teacher certification through SARIC. Select workshops offer graduate credit through the University of West Alabama for educators pursuing advanced degrees.
