EE Teaching Practices Cohort

 Registration is closed for this event
Do you want to build your skills in research-based, tested EE teaching practices and materials; and be part of a community of practice with whom to share expertise, problem solve, and build relationships?

Then join CAEE and other environmental educators for a mult-part community of practice in which you get the training, tools, and support from your peer community to transform the way that you teach EE. Topics covered include strategies for:

  • Engaging students directly with nature
  • Making your instruction more student-centered
  • Learning how to sequence your lessons based on the research-based learning cycle

This is a multi-part community of practice that includes two full day in-person gatherings as well as four virtual 2-3 hour gatherings. The expectation is by joining this cohort you are committing to the full series, which will take place over the course of approximately four months (see schedule below):
