Educating for Sustainability: An Ecological Approach to Teaching – A New Way of Thinking About Teaching and Learning

The AUSB Graduate Education and BA departments are excited to offer a special workshop that focuses on a new way of thinking about teaching and learning, Educating for Sustainability takes an “ecological” view of classrooms and schools. This event will be held at the ASUB campus, February 21,  4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  Drawing from what we know about living systems, Educating for Sustainability envisions students and teachers as connected to one another in a habitat for learning.  This workshop builds on principles of the natural world to identify practical strategies for designing successful, safe, and sustainable classroom environments.
