Trends of Environmental Education in Canadian Pre-Service Teacher Education Programs from 1979-1996.
Lin, Emily
Despite being recognized as a major priority for research and action in many international conferences, environmental education (EE) research in pre-service programs has been given very little attention in Canada. The only systematic national evaluation of EE at the teacher preparation level in Canada was conducted by John Towler in 1980-81. In 1996, a national survey using a modified version of Towler's questionnaire was distributed to all pre-service teacher training institutions across the Canadian provinces to determine the current status of EE which pre-service teachers receive in their preparation programs. The survey findings reveal that, over the last two decades, the number of Canadian teacher preparation institutions offering EE courses to pre-service teachers has remained generally low and the level of priority granted to EE has been nominal.
