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

Community partnerships enhanceย ย ESE in teacher education

How can community partnerships enhanceย ย ESE in teacher education?ย ย OISEโ€™s Dept. of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning aims to find out.ย ย OISE is collaborating with the Toronto District School Boardโ€™s EcoSchools programย ย to integrate preservice and inservice professional learning on ESE on a broad scale to explore the benefits of bringing novice and experienced teachers together.ย ย This is not a new idea, as Faculties of Ed often lead workshops for teachers, and teachers model ESE for teacher candidates during practicum.ย ย What makes this collaboration innovative is its scale and commitment.ย ย Unfolding over three years, this initiative involves a wide variety of workshops, talks, and experiential events; a cohort of teacher candidates focused on ESE; an annual conference and Ecofair; practicum placements; an Action Research team; and intensive summer courses.ย ย It aims to support learning in a range of ESE traditions, including nature-based learning, place-based ed, eco-justice ed, as well as include a strong presence of Indigenous ways of knowing. ย A 3 year research study is investigating the experiences of all of the participants. This ambitious project hopes to demonstrate new ways for school boards and Faculties of Education to collaborate on meaningful, impactful approaches to moving ESE forward.ย  For more info on this project:ย ย https://www.oise.utoronto.ca/ese/TDSB_EcoSchools/index.html
