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. A new book aims to change that.
Based on in-depth empirical studies in school and university classrooms, the book "Environmental Learning Insights from research into the student experience" presents rich insights into the complexities and dynamics of students´ environmental learning.
Still in early infancy
Together with Mark Rickinson and Nick Hopwood, centre researcher Cecilia Lundholm show how careful analysis of students´ environmental learning experiences can provide powerful pointers for future practice, policy and research.
- This book is about how school and university students experience and respond to learning activities concerned with environmental issues. While the learning demands associated with sustainable development become ever greater and more complex, our understandings of the nature and dynamics of such learning are in their early infancy, Lundholm says.
The aim of this book is to bring learners and their experiences to the centre of current debates about environmental education.
By exploring the real-time actions, interactions and interpretations of individual learners in various environmental learning situations, the authors show how insights from research into the student experience can provide powerful pointers for future practice, policy and research.
