The Phase 1 workshop is your first step toward completing the National Geographic Educator Certification Program. It can be completed either in person or online

The workshop introduces National Geographic’s Learning Framework, which is built around attitudes, skills, and knowledge sets that encourage students to think like explorers. We hope you’ll carry the concepts from the Phase 1 workshop through every stage of the program and beyond. 

Note: If you have already taken the workshop at a conference, you are ready for Phase 2
