Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education

Connect, Explore, Engage with Educator Preparation Programs

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and the Wisconsin K-12 Energy Education Program (KEEP) of the Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education have awarded funding for this two-day workshop. 

The goals of the workshop are to:
1. Develop a shared vision for what environmental education (EE) should be for all educator preparation programs in Wisconsin.
2. Utilize our network to learn more about environmental education and its effect on teaching and learning.
3. Craft a plan for your own program to advance education for environmental literacy and sustainability.

Significance of the Workshop
Wisconsin’s rich legacy of learning about and appreciation for the natural environment resulted in the Wisconsin State Legislature approving the requirement for conservation education for youth in 1930 (State of Wisconsin, 1989), teacher education in 1935, and the requirement that all school districts in Wisconsin incorporate environmental education into their curricula in 1983.

Candidates seeking licenses in early childhood regular education, elementary and middle school regular education, science, and social studies must demonstrate knowledge and understanding in environmental education including the conservation of natural resources.
