Boost your teaching with a convenient ETV LEARN Self-paced Renewal Credit course! Our Winter 2024 session begins January 19 and features the most recent course created with South Carolina naturalist/teacher Rudy Mancke.

Naturalist Rudy Mancke (1945-2023) worked with ETV Education to create many programs for students and professional development courses for SC educators. His ETV colleagues and many others, including many teachers who learned so much from him over the years, grieve his loss but we celebrate his passion to inspire us to learn and teach about our natural world. And we can honor Rudy by sharing what we have learned with students. In tribute to him, consider participating in the most recent ETV LEARN course created with him, Integrating Natural History to Engage Students. The course is part of our FREE course offer (see details below).
