T.E.A.C.H. is a field-based professional development opportunity where teachers will explore coastal Alabama’s diverse habitats and organisms. With a focus on charismatic coastal animals, join us to explore our coastal ecosystems and their inhabitants.

This multi-day workshop will engage teachers in environmental literacy by venturing into a variety of coastal ecosystems: some of which are healthy, some of which are disappearing, and some of which are being restored for future generations. While in the field and back in the classroom, teachers will learn from DHP educators and DISL marine scientists, who focus their research on coastal birds, marine mammals, and estuarine turtles!

T.E.A.C.H. is suitable for educators from diverse backgrounds and grade levels. Participants will leave with a wealth of knowledge, new ideas, and new resources for engaging their students in a variety of teaching environments!

Please note that due to the funding source, priority is given to active educators in Mississippi and Alabama until April 1, 2023. Pre-service educators and educators from other areas may register prior to April 1 (and do need not to submit the deposit) but will be placed on a waiting list.

After April 1, available spaces will be filled from the existing waitlist.

Please email DHPWorkshops@disl.edu or call (251) 861-2141 x7515 with any questions.
