2022 Upper Valley Teaching Place Collaborative Conference
The Upper Valley Teaching Place Collaborative, supported by the Wellborn Ecology Fund of the NH Charitable Foundation, is designing this gathering to be a place for Upper Valley place-based ecology educators and administrators to learn, grow, connect, and recharge for the school year ahead. In addition to sessions from local professional development providers, educators, and community partners, there will be many opportunities throughout the day to reflect, have fun, celebrate, and connect with colleagues as you spend time together learning and immersed in nature. Whether you are new to place-based education or have years of experience, this conference is the place to be!
Partners include Vermont Center for Ecostudies, Regeneration Corps, Vermont Institute of Natural Sciences, Peer Associates, Shelburne Farms, Hubbard Brook Research Foundation, Sullivan County Conservation District, Four Winds Nature Institute, and teachers from around the Upper Valley. In addition to hands-on learning sessions, we will be offering mindfulness walks, Open Space, a teacher celebration, opportunities to visit local schools and exploration of a nearby Valley Quest!
