Evaluation and Analyses of Cultural Diversity Training with Environmental Educators
Galvan, Alma R.; LaRocque, Lisa
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v9 n4 p262-275 Oct 2010
The Environmental Education and Training Partnership Cultural Diversity Workshops were based on theoretical models and designed to increase individuals' awareness, knowledge, and intentions toward increasing culturally sensitivity. This study reports on the evaluation results from 191 participants. Their responses indicate significant changes in individuals' levels of awareness and understanding. However, the strategies used for enhancing participants' levels of understanding do not translate to the organizational level where change is needed to make environmental education relevant and effective when interacting with others holding different worldviews. The authors describe potential barriers and strategies for organizational change. (Contains 7 tables and 8 figures.)
