NEW! CJEE Special Issue on Environmental & Sustainability Education in Teacher Education

The CJEE realizes the impact teacher educators have on future generations
of teachers and their students, and as such the editors felt it was time to dedicate a volume to the topic.

– Editorial by Karrow, Inwood & Sims, p. 6

It’s finally here! The latest issue of the Canadian Journal of Environmental Education (CJEE) recently published online is a special edition taking a closer look at Environmental and Sustainability Education (ESE) in Teacher Education (TE) in Canada. This brand new issue is guest edited by Doug Karrow (Brock University), Hilary Inwood (OISE/University of Toronto) and Laura Sims (Universitรฉ de St. Boniface) and takes a look at what’s happening in Canadian Teacher Education from coast to coast. The seven articles comprising this edition represent a variety of topics, contexts, problems, methodological approaches and more.

This publication marks the very first time in the CJEE’s 23 year history that a volume has been devoted to exclusively to Teacher Education. Inspired by the last Research Symposium held by the ESE-TE National Network, this special issue is a testament to the ESE-TE Network’s strong belief in the importance of having a “vibrant and thriving ESE-TE research community” to drive the field forward.

This CJEE Special Edition in Environmental and Sustainability Education in Teacher Education is now available to read for free online at https://cjee.lakeheadu.ca/issue/view/89

If you have an article (journal or trade magazine), book chapter or book that has recently been published (2019 onwards) or will soon be published and you would like us to showcase your work as part of the growing body of literature in this area, please email a link to access your work (or a shareable pdf copy), along with an APA reference, to contact@eseinfacultiesofed.ca 

 We look forward to your reading about the important work youโ€™ve been doing in Canadian ESE within teacher education!


NEW Book – Environmental and sustainability education: Canadian perspectives (Springer, 2020) edited by Karrow & DiGiuseppe

We are thrilled to share a NEW book edited by Douglas Karrow and Maurice DiGiuseppe that leads readers on a richly detailed and highly engaging exploration of Environmental and Sustainability Education (ESE) in teacher education all over Canada. Environmental and sustainability education: Canadian perspectives (Springer, 2020) offers a wide variety of perspectives on what is happening in ESE in pre-service classrooms across the country. As the third volume in Springerโ€™s International Explorations in Outdoor and Environmental Education this book showcases and honours the essential contributions Canadian teachers, researchers and teacher educators have made to the conversation about engaging future teachers within ESE. 

As a current doctoral student studying teacher candidatesโ€™ experiences in ESE, this in depth text has been an asset to my own research. It serves as a guide to the most recent literature in Canadian ESE by introducing scholars doing critical work in the field. It also inspires my own dissertation by showcasing the myriad of ways we can approach contextualizing ESE and studying its impacts on pre-service teachers.ย  This is a must-read for anyone looking for an excellent overview to the current landscape of ESE in Canadian teacher education.ย

Canadian Perspectives on Initial Teacher Environmental Education Praxis

Lots of compelling research is being done on ESE in Teacher Ed these days in Canada! ย  A new publication entitled Canadian Perspectives on Initial Teacher Environmental Education Praxis ย by the Canadian Association of Teacher Education (CATE) in 2016ย provides evidence of this. CATE is part of the Canadian Society for the Studies in Education; this is their first anthology of ESE research, and one of the first that shares studies by Canadian scholars in this field. ย Led by Doug Karrow (Brock) and Maurice DiGiuseppe (UOIT), it was co-edited by a team of faculty members from across Ontario, including Paul Elliott (TrentU), Hilary Inwood (OISE/UT), & Yovita Gwekwerere (Laurentian). ย With research from across the country, it builds on a study conducted by the CMEC in 2013 that tracked the status of ESD in faculties of education; this anthology provides new insights into how ESE & ESD are being theorized and implemented in pre-service education. ย For those who might like to read more, it can be accessed atย http://cate-acfe.ca/
