Travel can do more than just change the way a person looks at the world; it can also enhance their skills and their ability to make the world a better place. Our professional development workshops for science teachers and other like minded professionals can provide opportunities to gather hands-on experience and firsthand exposure to new and exciting environments under the guidance of expert leaders. 
This type of travel requires more than just a suitcase - it involves the spirit, intellect, and emotions of the travelers. Through international experiential learning with expert guides, educators return to the classroom refreshed and reinvigorated, with in-depth subject knowledge and new skills. 
Our primary goal for our international professional development programs is to provide enriching, affordable educational travel opportunities that are accessible to all teachers and professionals. 

GLOBAL LITERACY

Teachers are expected to be globally literate and able to foster a worldwide perspective in the practice of teaching. Educators must be attuned culturally, environmentally, and socially to the ever-changing landscape of the classroom and to the competitive global environment. We offer a variety of international professional development opportunities for teachers covering biology, environmental science, conservation, world cultures, marine science, geography, citizen science opportunities, hands-on research, and community service projects. In addition to field knowledge, teachers are encouraged to collaborate and share creative solutions to classroom situations through peer-to-peer exchange. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION

We partner with renowned national, regional, and private organizations that support professionals continuing their learning experience. We facilitate the links between teachers and these organizations to ensure that both the curriculum and hands-on learning experiences they gained continue to nourish their practice and performance at home.

Graduate and continuing education credits are available for our professional development travel programs throughUniversity of the Pacific. Our fundraising partners include Fund for Teachers, an organization providing educators access to grants to help fund their travel program.
