The Heritage Interpretation Training Center's

Interpretive Planning for Programs,
Exhibits, Panels and Related Services
To Help You Interpret Climate Change and Global Warming
Issues to Your Audiences, Communities and Regions.

13 Units, 4 CEU's

Climate change and global warming issues are quickly reaching a critical level affecting each of us as well as the world every day.  From enabling extreme weather, sea level increases from glacial melting and flooding, affecting farming and food production, and the increasing health risks such as asthma in children, we, as interpreters, interpretive organizations and agencies, museums and zoo educators have to do a better job in interpreting climate issues to our visitors.  We need to do this particularly at the grass root level, for our own visitors raising awareness of problems and de-bunking myths.

It is the focus of this course to help empower you to be an effective climate change educator, community interpretive resource and developer/presenter of interpretive programs, media and services to inspire your visitors to learn more about how climate change will, or currently does, affect them and their families personally, and inspire them to take active steps at home to help reduce the affects of climate change.

For this, as with all of our interpretive courses, you can/will:

1.      Start the course at any time.

2.      Work through the course at your own speed.

3.      Receive text books and resource materials as e-books and PDF articles.

4.      Chat with the course coach (John Veverka) any time via e-mail, telephone chat or SKYPE                                              whenever you need some help, ideas or information.

5.      Average time to work through the course would be 6-8 weeks, depending on your work schedule                                              and time commitments, but you could complete the course faster.

6.      Work on your specific projects, media or interpretive service as part of course assignments.

7.      This course and assignments can be customized for your specific organization, objectives, or                              interpretive projects and media.

8.      Finish the course with more than knowledge - finish with draft products to help you interpret                            climate change issues to your visitors or target markets.
