Each summer field-based teacher trainings are offered by Alaska Geographic through the Murie Science and Learning Center. Join us for a head-first dive into fascinating subject matter. Shoulder-to-shoulder with other teachers, scientists and specialists we will experiment with activities, and discuss methods, tools, and resources. Professional development credit is provided by the University of Alaska.
Most teacher trainings are coordinated by Alaska Geographic and are based from the MSLC field camp in Denali. The field camp is situated along the Teklanika River and makes an excellent launching point for Denali exploration.
Participants on these teacher trainings must be capable walkers, in good health, and equipped for sudden changes in weather. Hiking distance and physical fitness levels are described in greater detail in each course overview document.
We also have more than 20 Field Seminars accredited for professional development credit.
Scholarships for Teachers
