Abstract

Exploring New Environments, a half-day workshop developed by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s DESTINY Traveling Science Learning Program, takes an interdisciplinary approach to teacher professional development. This model was created to give teachers assistance in teaching ecosystem ecology. It is based on the idea that teachers are also learners who thrive when given the means and encouragement to explore fresh intellectual worlds.
