Environmental education encompasses everything from nature preschools and science museums to environmental science courses in high school and college and even sustainability in the workplace. NAAEE commissioned us to produce a series online learning modules called eeLEARN for people who are new to the field. We designed these self-directed, multi-media experiences based on the latest ideas of online learning to integrate with NAAEE's professional development platform. Users who complete a learning module receive an automatically generated certificate and a badge indicating learning hours on their profile in eePRO.
The first module covers the definition and basic concepts of EE through a variety of media, including videos, animations, and audio clips:
We also brought to life a series of "Big Ideas" in environmental education through animated GIFs:
The second module looks at the history of the field, including an interactive timeline, archival videos, and profile of one of the founders of the field.
