Some of you are in districts that require prior approval so this is another reason we are getting this information to you now.
Each Field Trip course offers fun and practical classroom enrichment from 9:00am – 2:30pm M – F. Courses are open to all adults, not limited to teachers. Sorry NO children!
Additional practicum will be required to satisfy the necessary 45 hours of professional work requirement. This will be practical to you and discussed during the registration meeting.
We are offering three Field Trip courses this summer with Dave Harding, instructor. Teachers may receive 3 graduate-level professional development semester units/credits for each course from the University of the Pacific for their participation. Thus, a total of 9 semester graduate-level credits is possible for you this summer.
The cost per course is $297. This price includes the 3 semester units/credits of graduate-level professional development credit per course.
Non-teachers, or teachers who don’t need university credit, may choose to audit any course for only $195 plus site entrance fees.
If you have taken any of the courses previously and would like to take them again for credit, we have additional course titles and numbers from which you may choose. If you are not sure of which course(s) you have taken in the past, email our office and we will provide you with that information.
Worried you may have to miss a class? No worries. We can arrange meaningful make-ups for you.
Note: These Graduate-Level Professional Development Semester Units/Credits are designed for professional growth and advancement on the salary scale. They may not be applied towards an advanced degree with University of the Pacific.
