The National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, initiated by the North American Association for Environmental Education in 1994, has developed a series of guidelines that set the standards for high-quality environmental education. Each of these publications was developed by a diverse team of professionals, and each has gone through a substantive review by thousands of professionals prior to its publication.
The Guidelines for Excellence in Environmental Education Workshop will focus on two publications from the series: K-12 Environmental Education and Nonformal Environmental Education Programs. This blend will provide workshop participants the information and knowledge to increase effectiveness in providing high-quality EE programs for audiences in both formal and non-formal settings. All educators are welcome to attend the workshop, however, the target audience is nonformal educators.
Through attending this workshop, participants will
- Regard the Guidelines for Excellence series as a professional resource
- Review and refine their EE program planning, execution, and evaluation to align with key
characteristics of high-quality environmental education programs
- Explore how the environmental literacy framework links to national and state standards
- Use the K-12 Environmental Education Guidelines to develop or strengthen their standards-based EE instructional programs
