Recent Graduate Works and Programs in Environmental Education and Communications. Volume VII.
Hines, Jody M., Ed.
Compiled are 35 abstracts of recent master's and doctoral theses and major project research works in environmental education and communications. Most of the citations included describe work completed in the 1983-84 academic year. Abstracts are organized into seven topic areas: (1) site analysis--descriptions and development plans for areas to be used for environmental education; (2) parks and camps (users and interpreters)--studies dealing with park and camp programs, especially user characteristics and interpretive techniques; (3) media communications--examinations of the effectiveness of various forms of media; (4) pupil-centered studies--research dealing with student characteristics; (5) teacher-centered studies--research on teacher and interpreter training, attitudes, and behavior; (6) citizen-centered studies--research on attitudes, values, and involvement of citizens in environmental education; and (7) studies dealing with environmental education policy, administration, and philosophy, as well as some experimental studies which cannot be included in the other categories. Title, author, and institutional source are provided for each abstract. An index to entries in previous volumes and an alphabetical list by state of institutions offering graduate programs in environmental education and communications are also provided, as is a list of such institutions in Canada. Each entry includes a brief description of the program and, when applicable, the degree(s) offered. (JN)
