Discovery Hall Programs strives to provide current and relevant continuing education opportunities for teachers and informal educators through hands-on workshops. These programs range from single-day to five-day residential workshops, all on the beautiful Dauphin Island Sea Lab campus.

Current research is presented, along with fun and engaging lesson plans and activities to take back to the classroom. Hands-on experiences, both in the field and on the water, give teachers a valuable front-row seat to topics and ideas they can then present to students. 

All workshops are created with Alabama Course of Study standards, Ocean Literacy Principles, and Climate Literacy Principles in mind, ensuring that they remain relevant to educators’ teaching needs. 

In addition to new lesson ideas for students, DHP workshops provide important professional development hours for maintaining teacher certification, as well as select workshops offering graduate credit for educators pursuing advanced degrees.
