Your questions answered.
Do PLT workshops count toward Continuing Education Units (CEU) or State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH)?
In many cases, yes. Workshop facilitators are responsible for obtaining approval to award CEU credits or SCECHs prior to conducting the class. Contact your facilitator prior to registration to confirm SCECH accreditation.
Can I be notified of upcoming professional development in my area?
Is the PLT curriculum correlated to standards and benchmarks?
Yes. National standards and benchmark correlations have been made. Michigan specific correlations have been made for the K-8 Activity Guide. Non-formal program correlations have also been made for scouts, 4-H, and more. See Correlations.
I am a pre-service teacher or college student, can I participate in PLT?
Yes! Our curriculum is appropriate for pre-service, current, and non-formal educators including parents who homeschool and community program volunteers. Anyone who is interested in using the outdoors as a classroom is welcome to become PLT certified.
How do I become a facilitator to train teachers to use the PLT curriculum?
After becoming a certified PLT educator, you must participate in a facilitator training to become a PLT facilitator and host your own workshops. We generally offer facilitator trainings at least every other year. Make sure to sign up for our Educator Database to be notified when the next facilitator training is held.
