Educator Professional Development

Educator professional development opportunities at Cedar Creek aim to increase student achievement and content retention in science by improving the quality and effectiveness of teachers’ delivery of science curriculum in both formal and informal educational environments. Specifically, they are designed to enhance teacher and student understanding of fundamental ecological principles and the impacts of various human-induced disturbances on ecosystem health and function. Some programs are offered wholly by Cedar Creek and the University of Minnesota, while others are run by outside organizations using Cedar Creek as a venue for science education workshops. Follow the links below for more information about these programs or to register!
