A day at the beach to become scientists that discover and explore the coast! Various scientists are needed to thoroughly study the coast. We will become those specific scientists looking at plants, invertebrates, intertidal zones, wrack lines and more. During this expedition teachers will engage in hands-on activities and inquiry projects that include flora & fauna comparisons, shell dichotomy, fauna investigation, physical and chemical component analysis (includes human impact on our shoreline). This expedition is discovery focused, in which participants are engaged in experiential learning about the coast and shoreline with the goal of equipping them to share this knowledge with students.
 
The initial workshop was such a success and so many people requested another one, so.... we decided to do more! The Sanford Inspire & Harmony Programs allow teachers access to online modules as well as to receive free, high-quality materials and resources they may use in the classroom to help grow their students to achieve their potential. Please join us for this PD and receive free, high-quality materials and resources!

The UTD Teaching Excellence Foundation had the pleasure of attending a UTD Professional Development workshop on Mindfulness hosted by Miami-Dade College North Campus. Mindful Kids Miami gave a wonderful experience and the participants voiced they enjoyed the PD. This is one of the opportunities the Foundation hopes to be able to offer in the coming year. We have identified a grant to support this effort and hope to add it to our roster of Professional Development opportunities shortly.
