National Geographic Educator Certification

MGA will host Phase 1 of the National Geographic Educator Certification.


National Geographic Educator Certification is a free professional development program that recognizes pre-K through 12 formal and informal educators committed to inspiring the next generation of explorers, conservationists, and changemakers. These educators are part of a powerful movement to make the world a better place by empowering students to be informed decision-makers equipped to solve meaningful challenges in their communities and beyond. Don’t just teach students about the world—teach them how to change it.  

The Educator Certification is a three-phase program: 

Phase 1: Participate in an in-person workshop to hone your skills in National Geographic’s educational mission: We teach kids about the world and how it works, empowering them to succeed and to make it a better place.

Phase 2: Develop and implement two activities that apply the skills gained in Phase 1 and incorporate a National Geographic resource.

Phase 3: Craft a capstone project that tells the story of student learning, demonstrates professional growth, and inspires other educators.

Date: Thursday, December 6, 2018

Time: 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Location: University of Montana Campus, Stone Hall 217

All participants will receive a $50 stipend for their time.
