The Environment Factor: Developing an Environmental Programme in Further and Higher Education.
Elcome, David, Ed.
Although the National Curriculum Council for England and Wales has recognized environmental education as one of five cross-curricular themes in school education, it has not achieved the same degree of influence in the Further and Higher Education (FHE) sector. This document recommends that a program be developed for that purpose. The booklet is presented in eight sections. An introduction describes the problem and the organization of the recommendations presented in the document. Four sections outline recommendations for developing environmental education in FHE and show examples of good practice already achieved in some colleges and institutions. The four sections discuss basic aims and content for FHE; the key environmental education related subject areas of agriculture and horticulture, planning, and management and business; teacher training; and the conservation field. The final three sections contain the conclusions, a summary of the key recommendations, and a bibliography of 15 citations. (MDH)
