Methods of Teaching Environmental Education

November 9, 2019 @ 8:00 am - November 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


The focus of this 10-hour workshop is to prepare participants from a variety of educational backgrounds and experiences in both the formal and non-formal sectors to use exemplary Environmental Education teaching methods. Participants will learn about a variety of teaching techniques, methods and instructional strategies, and the workshop will include multiple interactive components. This is a required workshop for all N.C. Environmental Education Certification candidates who enrolled in the program after Jan. 1, 2009, as Criteria I credit. This course may also count as credit for Continuing Education for those educators who are already certified.

The course, hosted by Amy Renfranz, director of education for the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation, will run Nov. 9-10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

NOTE: The Basics of Environmental Education Independent Study is a prerequisite to the Methods of Teaching Environmental Education course for those wishing to earn their Environmental Educator Certification. The necessary course materials can be found here: https://www.eenorthcarolina.org/certification/program-requirements/basics-environmental-education.
