Environmental Education (ENED)

ENED 890 - Environmental Education Summer Institute: Field Ecology, Human Communities, and Curriculum

Credits: 8

An intensive, team-taught experience that immerses students in a process of inquiry explicitly designed to connect and integrate work in the Environmental Education Program's three focus areas: Pedagogy, Environmental Science, and Environmental Values, Policy, and Planning. A four week program, meeting four days/weeks for six-eight hours/day, with out-of-class assignments make it a full-time commitment for students. Classroom and field-based activities help students experience the interdisciplinary nature of environmental education firsthand, while giving students the opportunity to explore materials, research methods, and instructional approaches appropriate to their specific educational context. Prereq: a minimum of two prior life or physical science courses. Permission required.
