Summary and Objectives:
The goal of this distance learning course is for U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service employees and other conservation professionals to align their education and outreach activities to current education standards and explore other ways of assisting formal and non-formal educators with NGSS/3D Learning and STEM/STEAM. During the course, participants will either adapt an existing education or outreach activity or develop a template to develop a new activity. This distance learning course has three components: An online classroom through Moodle, presentations and instruction via webinars and an Individual project to apply learning.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Explain the relevancy of supporting education standards by identifying their site's resource management goal and audience's needs.
- Use case studies to correlate educational standards with education and outreach activities.
- Either adapt an existing education or outreach activity or develop a template to develop a new activity (Individual Project - Level 2).
- Implement their developed education or outreach activity within 6 to 9 months (Terminal objective - Level 3).
