Adirondack Experience, The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake (ADKX) has recently been approved by The New York State Education Department (NYSED) to be a sponsor of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE).
The Adirondack Experience will now offer teacher workshops that allow participants to receive credit towards continuing education hours. Many teachers are required to obtain 100 continuing education hours every five years, as a sponsor ADKX can now act as a platform for teachers to fulfill these requirements while they discover the importance of the institution and the spirit of the Adirondacks. Adopting CTLE helps museums to create a stronger connection with educators and allows us to become a listed resource with other accepted professional development providers.
Thanks to our generous benefactors, Adirondack Experience outreach educational programs in classrooms, and field trips to the campus are offered at no charge to schools in any county within the Adirondack Park. All of our school programs allow students to interact firsthand with the past, combining experiential learning with artifact and document study.
