Let us do the driving as you start your summer off with a ton of environmental experiences that will refresh and reinvigorate you both personally and professionally! Stand under a wind turbine, walk through a forest, and taste local foods all while networking with colleagues and sector experts.

The Professional Development Program

This five-day traveling program will showcase Alberta’s dynamic ecosystems as we travel through parkland, foothills and the boreal. In each of these regions we will explore Alberta’s primary natural resource sectors including energy, forestry, and agriculture through the lens of land use, water, wildlife, and climate. During this program, you will participate in unique tours and hear from scientists, local industry, conservation as well as local indigenous groups to gain knowledge and better understand land use. We will discuss the social, economic and environmental considerations that influence our province’s ecosystems.

We will ask big questions, consider our role as educators in the environmental landscape, share new ideas to inspire student learning, and most importantly have a great time exploring the outdoors together!

  • Hear from expert guests
  • Tour research facilities and field sites
  • Network with colleagues
  • Access tons of environmental and natural resource education resources

“Inside Education PD is very practical, with a high in-class value. Presenters are very knowledgeable and have useful experience tips to share.”


- Vicki Dawe Westwood Community High School, Fort McMurray

Inside Education’s work brings us to all corners of the province, as such, we acknowledge the Indigenous people who lived among and traveled through the land in the area currently known as Alberta. The relationship the Peoples of Treaty 6, Treaty 7, and Treaty 8 and Alberta’s Métis people have with the land is founded on a deep respect for the environment. This connection forms the foundation of our personal responsibility for the stewardship of our natural resources, a connection Inside Education strives to foster among students and teachers through our diverse programming.
