Date and Time:

We are pleased to offer a Reflecting on Practice Coaching Workshop, designed by educational researchers from Lawrence Hall of Science and led in collaboration with the California Academy of Sciences. Reflecting on Practice is a modular professional learning program, specifically designed for informal educators, environmental educators, and interpreters.

The workshop familiarizes leaders with a nationally field-tested curriculum for advancing informal education, and building an organizational culture of reflective practice and incorporating research on learning into everyday work experiences.

During this workshop, you will (a) experience portions of the modular curriculum as a learner, (b) reflect on and problem solve for barriers related to shifting organizational culture, and (c) develop a personalized implementation plan for your own site. You will receive a curriculum binder, a book on coaching teams, and some follow-up support after the workshop is complete.

Costs include a take-home binder, meals during the workshop, and follow-up support. 

We highly recommend sending 2 or more people from your organization to this workshop.
