'Āina Education Resources of 'Ewa Teacher Professional Development Workshop Application Form
This application is intended for teachers in the 'Ewa moku (region) interested in attending a new workshop on, 'Āina Education Resources of 'Ewa, conducted by the Mālama Learning Center as part of the Hawai'i Green Collar Institute.

Course dates are:
1) Saturday January 25, 2020 (Wai/Kai Resources of 'Ewa)
2) Saturday February 8, 2020 (Mauka Resources of 'Ewa)
*Both days will go from 8am-3pm.

Teachers in the 'Ewa region are encouraged to attend to gain first-hand knowledge from community experts and participate in place-based, hands-on experiences in the moku of 'Ewa that will connect teaching to local and global issues. Participants will see how education can seamlessly incorporate STEAM, HA (Nā Hopena A’o), and NGSS.

Through this course you will: Learn about the environmental and cultural resources within the community that you teach in, get ideas and are inspired to create place-based curriculum/lessons pertaining to 'Ewa, and know of more organizations in the 'Ewa moku doing 'āina-based work where you can potentially take your students to in the future.

Seats in the class will be filled as qualified applications are accepted, therefore early submissions are encouraged. Applications are due by January 5, 2020. A $40 program fee will be due to Mālama Learning Center after one is accepted. 'Ewa moku teachers will be given preference to align with the objectives of grants from the Kamehameha Schools 'Ewa Region and NOAA BWET Hawai'i that are subsidizing most costs. Teachers from other districts are welcome based on space availability.

This is a non-credit professional development workshop and no portfolio is required. This experience may support teachers’ license renewal (Hawai'i Teacher Performance Standard #5). Upon request, Mālama Learning Center will provide documentation to show evidence of participation.

This workshop is coordinated by the Mālama Learning Center, a non-profit environmental education organization based in Kapolei, as part of its Hawai'i Green Collar Institute (HGCI) that has been running since 2010.
