Teacher Learning Center

Engaging Teachers, Invigorating Education

Customized Experiences

The Teacher Learning Center offers day, multi-day and year-long custom experiences for schools and other educational organizations. Programs focus on an introduction to or renewal of place-based learning, using research-based and innovative educational strategies. Customized experiences include a visit to our facilities in Jackson Hole and onsite training at area schools. Projects have included projects such as instruction for teachers at East Fort Worth Montessori School (Texas) on utilizing their school garden to meet state standards. Currently, the Teacher Learning Center is working with educational leaders in the Kingdom of Bhutan to implement and manage place-based education across the country.

Please contact Doug Wachob, doug.wachob@tetonscience.org if you would like to plan a customized workshop or conference.

  • Developing a Place-Based Curriculum in the Kingdom of Bhutan

    In early 2008, a delegation from Teton Science Schools visited the Kingdom of Bhutan to ascertain the prospects of collaborating with the Kingdom’s Ministry of Education, Royal University of Bhutan, Royal Education Council, Royal Society for the Protection of Nature and others to design an approach to implement place-based education in schools throughout the country.
