Earn professional development hours or university credit with Population Education this spring!

Population Education is excited to announce that registration is open for our spring 2017 online professional development course for science and social studies educators (grades 6-12). The course runs from March 13th - May 12th, 2017. Discover student-centered learning strategies that use contemporary issues and real-world data to examine the social and environmental impacts of human population growth. If you teach about topics like environmental science, world or human geography, biology or life science, world history, or their AP counterparts, this course is for you! The course is asynchronous, which means students can work at their own leisure and pace. There are online discussion boards, weekly journals, and a final project, all built to provide participants with meaningful feedback and materials to use within their own classrooms. Teachers can choose to earn one hour of graduate education credit from the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) or 45 professional development clock hours for successfully completing the full eight weeks.

Class size is capped at 30 participants, so don't wait to sign up. The cost is $80.00 to earn 45 CEU hours or $155.00 (for credit) + $80.00 (for CEUs) to earn credit through UMKC.  For more information and to register, visit https://courses.populationeducation.org.
