Environmental Learning. Clear implications for enhancing environmental learning practice, policy and research Grounded in everyday practice with rich, detailed examples from school and university classrooms Clear focus on learner perspective and experience, i.e. what environmental education looks and feels like for students Environmental education and education for sustainable development have become features of many countries’ formal education systems.
To date, however, there have been few attempts to explore what such learning looks and feels like from the perspective of the learners. Based on in-depth empirical studies in school and university classrooms, this book presents rich insights into the complexities and dynamics of students’ environmental learning. The authors show how careful analysis of students’ environmental learning experiences can provide powerful pointers for future practice, policy and research.
