Perhaps New York City is not the laboratory for you to explore the shaping of environmental inquiry. You teach in NYC or an urban area and you need to reconnect to the excitement of teaching in a manner that brings the subject matter to life.
On the sprawling, bucolic Pleasantville, NY campus of Pace University, join educators for this exciting unique course on environmental education. Pace faculty in conjunction with experts in the field will explore with students a wide range of current environmental topics in a way relevant to them. This program will combine theory with hands-on field study and experiences designed to enhance elementary school teachers’ understanding of environmental studies, but all are welcome to attend. Field trips will supplement classroom discussions and the seminar will be held on the Pace University Pleasantville campus taking advantage of the diverse qualities including an on-campus nature center, modern labs, extensive library, and a campus rich in a variety of flora and fauna. The outdoors is your classroom!
Three graduate credits will be given to those who successfully complete the program.
