About the Session:

Are you looking for instructional support for both your in-class teaching as well as using the outdoors as a classroom? The Jasper National Park Palisades Education Centre is excited to share information highlighting three different ways in which we can support you as educators. The Palisades Outdoor Learning Series, Palisades Education Office Hours and The Marmot Learning Centre Series are all virtual, interactive and FREE! This short overview session will help you become more familiar with what these programs have to offer you and your students.

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
