OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Online Workshops

Project Learning Tree is now offering professional development to educators through their online courses!

If you are not able to find an in-person workshop that fits your schedule, please consider completing a workshop online through Project Learning Tree.

When you have concluded your online course, send us an email at ONREP@oregonstate.edu letting us know how you are going to use the information in your educational situation, and we will gladly share some Oregon-specific materials that relate.

PLT offers several online courses. Each online course provides a high-quality professional development experience. Each self-paced course is 3 to 6 hours long, and comprises several 20-30 minute “coursels”. Each coursel has been designed using best practices in online learning and teacher professional development (review The 5+ Guiding Principles for Professional Development for more information). The courses prepare educators to integrate environmental education materials into their instruction.

Each online course provides a high-quality professional development experience.

  • Interaction with the instructor, with clearly articulated expectations for completing the course


Is Online Learning for You?
PLT’s online courses are designed for educators who are comfortable with self-directed learning. Each online course can be accessed whenever and wherever you are with an internet connection. A basic knowledge of computers and web browsers is useful to be successful.
