EDUC-6210: Urbanizing Environmental Education

Students learn to observe, interpret and understand the factors that drive and shape urban places and that influence the urbanized culture, leading them to shape educational experiences that deepen urban ecological identity and stewardship. This class will offer readings, discussions and activities that reveal how people learn about the complexities of the urban environment - connecting people to place and their role in building healthy places in which to live and thrive. Students challenge and are encouraged to transform the current paradigms and pedagogies of environmental education by exploring the definitions and relationships that bring ‘urban’, ‘environment’ and ‘education’ together. Students define their personal and professional role as an urban environmental educator, considering the values, beliefs and assumptions that drive their aspirations, work and approaches to education.
