This year’s (2010) Trustee Academy was chocked full of great presentations and focused workshops, the following are some that stood out for me:
1. Environmental Education Success (Steve Dunsmuir-Saturna Evironmental Education Program)
This presentation focused on the development of an environmental education program on Saturna Island that embodies much of the 21st Century Learning ideas. The program focuses on environmental sustainability, mentorship, and innovative approaches to delivering curriculum.
Outdoor Education. Sustainability. Community Mentorship. Sounds like a good fit for the Sunshine Coast, don’t you think?
Of course, many schools, teachers, SETAs, and community programs already embrace and utilize these concepts, but is it time for more focused programming around this?
