The 2023 Evolution and Ecology Teacher Workshop, New Concepts in Evolution and the Living Environment, will be a one-day hybrid program held at the New York State Museum and virtually over the web on Saturday, January 28th, 2023. 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. 

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 the Regents Exam in Living Environment.
