An important part of the mission of the Smithsonian — the increase and diffusion of knowledge — is to provide professional development experiences for teachers.
The Museum delivers high-quality professional development, including workshops, symposia, and volunteer opportunities through its departments and with other Smithsonian museums.
As we schedule these opportunities, we'll publish details here. Get Schedule of the Museum's Live Video Programs

Teacher Tuesday Video Webinars
Educators, are you curious about how to best navigate and utilize the National Museum of Natural History’s digital offerings? In the spring of 2020, we produced live Zoom webinars about our educational resources. In the first half of each program, we took a deep dive into the featured resource, and then we answered viewer questions during the second half of the program. We are no longer producing new Teacher Tuesday programs, but you will find the recordings below.
