Educator Professional Learning

Throughout the year, the FLI hosts educator professional learning workshops on a wide range of existing and emerging environmental topics impacting our region, including water quality of lakes and streams, stream sampling, aquatic insect identification, water chemistry, invasive species, harmful algal blooms, climate change and other special topics. The goal of these workshops is to connect educators with resources and emerging science about the Finger Lakes and surrounding region.

Offered in collaboration with FLI research and education partners, workshops for educators are FREE and open to informal and formal educators, homeschool educators, and students pursuing teaching degrees. FLI education programs are correlated to NYS P-12 Science Learning Standards and CTLE credits are offered for most workshops.

Workshops are announced on the FLI webpage and through the FLI's K-12 Education e-newsletter. To receive the K-12 Education e-newsletter, which also includes events for students, please click on Join our Mailing List and select "FLI Education K-12" when signing up.
