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 and the Chicago Zoological Society. 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.
