The 2022 Evolution and Ecology Teacher Workshop, “Faunal and Human Responses to Climate Changes,” will be held at the New York State Museum on Saturday, January 29, 2022. The workshop is a professional-development opportunity for science teachers, especially those who teach biology and environmental science to middle and high school students. The workshop is presented by PhD-level State Museum scientists, including ornithologist Jeremy Kirchman, malacologist Denise Mayer, ichthyologist Jeremy Wright, and paleontologists Robert Feranec and Lisa Amati. In addition, guest lecturer Robert Rosenswig, professor of anthropology at the University at Albany, will discuss the effects of climate change on human history.   

Teachers will earn 8 hours of continuing-education credit from the State Education Department. They will gain valuable insight into the forefront of scientific research happening right here in New York State, including up-to-date information on a wide range of topics, including genetics, the fossil record, evolution, and ecology. The workshop is aligned with specific NYS Learning Standards and Regents Exams in The Living Environment.
