New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n153 p65-75 Spr 2017
An ecojustice seminar, held in May 2016 at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, is described in this chapter. The ecojustice theoretical framework, the seminar class design, and our findings relative to student learning as gleaned from follow-up focus groups, reflection papers, and online discussion are reported. Seminars such as these highlight the crisis and foster knowledge about the positive human-environmental relationships necessary for changes in perceptions and behaviors.
