Deepening Environmental Learning for Student Teachers
Thursday, May 16
As the next generation of K-12 educators, student teachers are central to shifting education systems towards environmental sustainability and addressing climate change. How can their environmental learning be deepened while still in preservice Teacher Education programs? Join Dr. Hilary Inwood and new teacher Alysse Kennedy for a webinar to explore how teacher educators can better prepare student teachers to become active eco-teachers in their first years of teaching. Share promising practices from your faculty of education, or the challenges you are facing in this work, and connect with others across North America who are working towards embedding Environmental Education into preservice teacher education.
