This course is designed to develop educators' competencies in environmental education. Course material draws on environmental education research and best practices from the teaching field. Using online and offline resources and tools, we will discuss the critical need for meaningful environmental education, and how to foster a sense of environmental stewardship for students through a project-based, practical approach.
