Summer Workshop for 6th-12th grade educators

August 19-22, 2013 in Charleston, Oregon with a session in November, 2013. 

*Please note that this workshop has reached capacity.  If you would like to be added to our wait-list please follow through with registration like normal.  

Join the Oregon Coast Education Program for a FREE 4-day workshop on Oregon's south coast. Participants will explore our understanding of climate change and the coast through hands-on learning while discovering how to best incorporate outdoor field experiences and on-line data into your classroom. We will share teaching modules designed to provide teachers from coastal and non-coastal areas of the state with tools, curriculum resources, and techniques for linking the aquatic world from watershed to the coast and ocean.

The Oregon Coast Education Program (OCEP) works with educators to engage students in Meaningful Watershed Education Experiences designed to involve classes in stewardship actions through a project-based learning model. Participants will engage in a variety of outdoor based coastal activities through a workshop designed to model the Preparation, Action, and Reflection phases that are integral to best practices in field-based education.  


Participants will receive:
  • Meals and lodging (if needed) for the duration of the workshop (dorm style lodging)
  • Water-quality light/temp data loggers and instruction in inquiry-based sampling
  • Coastal Education Kits with teaching materials from OCEP institutions
  • Access to professional learning community of OCEP educators
  • A newly created module on tidal marshes and climate change for piloting

Educators who participate in and complete this workshop are eligible to receive:
  • Funding to support field experiences and stipend with a complete Coastal Education Plan 
  • Continuing education credits through Portland State University (2 credits for $161, cost not covered by OCEP)
  • Continuing support from OCEP educators to assist with field experiences in the 2013-14.  

To ensure commitment in attending this workshop, OCEP will charge a $30 fee to workshop participants who fail to attend or cancel less than two weeks before the workshop occurs.  For this workshop you may cancel your spot any time prior to August 5th.  This helps to ensure full participation from all who register as well as allowing us to call our wait list and fill the empty spots.
