Teaching in Nature

Teaching in Nature | Research, sustainability and learning | Scoop.it

In this project, teachers from primary and secondary schools across a range of subject areas used collaborative action enquiry to plan and execute pupil excursions to local outdoor natural areas. The outdoor areas visited were designated National Nature Reserves (or other local wild places such as areas of Special Scientific Interest).

 

Teachers were entirely free to try any approach they wish. Each group of teacher-researchers worked closely together, sometimes using a theme or focal topic, to visit their site to conduct planning and to design their class visits. Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) staff members acted as guides and also advised on where to find local knowledge about the place. Funds were made available to cover for teachers while they engage in planning / attending workshops.

 

Staff of the University of Stirling and the teacher researchers collected a range of evidence of the activities undertaken. Some of these are on the website in the form of video, audio, pupils' work and teachers' plans and commentaries.

Integrating Environmental Education in Primary School Education in Tanzania | Teachers’ Perceptions and Teaching Practices

Integrating Environmental Education in Primary School Education in Tanzania | Teachers’ Perceptions and Teaching Practices | Research, sustainability and learning | Scoop.it

By Lydia A. Kimaryo

Åbo Akademi University (2011)

 

The study focuses on primary school teachers’ perceptions of environmental

education, its integration into primary school education and teachers’ teaching

practices in Tanzania. The thesis is based on empirical research. The theoretical

underpinnings of the study are based on Palmer’s (1998) model of

environmental education. According to the model, meaningful environmental

education should include education about, in or through and for the

environment.
