eeWORKS: Demonstrating the Power of Environmental Education
NAAEE's very own Executive Director, Judy Braus, as well as two esteemed environmental education researchers: Dr. Nicole Ardoin (Stanford University) and Alison Bowers (Virginia Tech & Stanford University) discuss their eeWORKS project, which is a research-to-practice initiative designed to demonstrate the impact of environmental education for achieving key outcomes. They will discuss their progress to date and how you can use the results to promote your work and the field of EE as a whole. As of November, 2017 they have completed research reviews and are designing communications around the impact of EE on: K-12 student achievement, conservation, and climate change education. Other reviews in the works include: nature connection in early childhood, civic engagement, positive youth development, and citizen science.
