Teacher Training in Environmental Education.
Connect, v6 n4 Dec 1981
Provided are recommendations and reports related to teacher training in environmental education (EE). Recommendations from the Intergovernment Conference on Environmental Education (Tbilisi, 1977) are highlighted, indicating that environmental training of qualified educational personnel be a priority activity. Activities of the Unesco-UNEP International Environmental Education Programme are also highlighted. The Programme's approach has been the prior orientation of key personnel toward developing EE strategies at the national level, particularly pre- and in-service teacher training. Individual reports on the status of teacher training in EE in four regions of Unesco membership are also included (Africa, Arab States, Europe-North America, and Latin America and the Caribbean). Topics in the African report, focusing on various aspects of EE teacher education, are based on results of a questionnaire. The Arab States report focuses on several areas related to pre-/in-service EE teacher training. The Europe-North America report addresses pre-service EE (cognitive, affective, skill-process domain activities, EE methodologies, site utilization, and national/regional cooperation in EE) and in-service EE (cognitive, affective, skill/process domains, methodology, teacher education program implementation, and national/regional cooperation). Brief highlights of individual country activities are provided in the Latin America/Caribbean report. Highlights of the European Subregional EE Seminar are also provided. (JN)
