Immersion in Education for Sustainability 2022

  • 5 Jul 2022
  • 12 Jul 2022
  • Shelburne Farms

Dive into the essential questions of Education for Sustainability and deepen your understanding of sustainability work.

Reflect, learn, and collaborate with a group of teacher colleagues from across the country and globe. Our Immersion program blends a design studio feel with self-directed learning.

Each module will explore a different essential question:

  • Module 1: What is Education for Sustainability?
  • Module 2: How do we design and educate for sustainability?
  • Module 3: How is place part of who we are? How does who we are impact how we teach?
  • Module 4: What can I offer, what can I gain from a network of EFS leaders?

This course is action-oriented with an expectation that participants will create an EFS portfolio that includes an EFS Action Plan, an EFS unit or project design, and a Sustainability Ethics and Values Statement.
