Cornell University will hold a five-week online course called Introduction to Environmental Education from Nov. 6 to Dec. 10.
This course is for beginning and aspiring environmental educators, including nonformal educators, environmental or park managers, zoo or botanic garden educators, volunteers, teachers and university students. This course can also support ongoing professional development of more experienced environmental educators.
Learn about environmental education foundations and approaches—including place-based education, nature and adventure education, climate change education, and environmental action in schools and non-formal settings—through pre-recorded lectures, readings and case studies. Participants can form local groups to take the course together, form bilingual groups to help participants with limited English, or try out new media such as Comic Life to get their educational message across. You will apply research-based knowledge to start new or enhance existing environmental education programs, strengthen your professional networks by exchanging ideas and resources with peer educators around the world, and gain professional credentials.
