Professional Development Opportunities

Are you looking for a professional development opportunity? We are currently working on several on-going education and extension projects and are often looking for K-12 teachers and informal educators to participate in virtual or in-person PD experiences.

For more information on the professional development opportunities listed below, please contact Erin Ingram at Thanks!

The Prairie Project

The Prairie Project is a five-year, USDA-funded, multistate project (Texas A&M (lead), University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Oklahoma State) focused on promoting widespread adoption of pyric herbivory and mixed species grazing in order to make rangeland production systems in the Great Plains more profitable, productive, sustainable, and beneficial to society at large.

This project is focused on engaging formal and informal educators (e.g. high school science teachers and 4-H/FFA leaders) in professional development opportunities. Game-based learning is being explored as a novel teaching approach in this topic area.
