A Living Classroom

Using Dublin Zoo as a living classroom, Dublin Zoo’s ever-popular DES course aims to provide educators with the skills, knowledge and tools to teach the Social, Environmental and Science Education (SESE) in their primary schools. Once equipped with these skills our goal is that teachers enable the students to live as an informed and caring member of local and wider communities.

Booking for the DES teacher’s course will go on sale in March 2020 online only. The course itself will run in July 2020 over 5 days (20 hours).

Topics will be delivered by expert facilitators in our new Discovery and Learning Centre and from our immersive living classroom, the grounds of Dublin Zoo. Teachers participating will have exclusive access to our state-of-the-art teaching spaces as well as the opportunity to explore the zoo after the daily programme.
