Building Ecological Literacy: Sustainability and Outdoor Learning Across the Curriculum
Saturday September 1st 2018, 9am – 3.30pm
This is a practical workshop which will demonstrate how the Australian Curriculum cross-curriculum priority area of Sustainability can be embedded in teaching across the Learning Areas to increase ‘ecological literacy’, as well as critical and creative thinking. Participants will experience approaches that can support students to have the knowledge, understandings and skills to engage in creating a more sustainable world, both inside and outside the classroom. The workshop is focused on primary school teachers, but the learnings can also apply to secondary teachers.
Participants will take home a resources list and several activity descriptions with links to the Australian curriculum.
