Integrating Inquiry and Indigenous Perspectives in Environmental & Sustainability Education (ESE)
In collaboration with EECOM and the Environmental & Sustainability in Teacher Education (ESE-TE) National Network, Natural Curiosity is excited to launch a new online professional learning opportunity exclusively for preservice and first-year educators (teachers and early childhood educators). This national online course will allow participants to deepen their understanding and pedagogical knowledge and skills within environmental education. This course focuses on integrating inquiry-based learning and bringing an Indigenous lens to teaching.
The Natural Curiosity National E-Course will begin this coming fall with registration opening in the summer. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date with all of Natural Curiosity's offerings!

The newsletter also features upcoming webinars from Natural Curiosity and its partners, including OISE SCAN, Learning for a Sustainable Future, and the Outdoor Learning Store.
