Empowering Students to Meet Today’s Eco-Social Issues through Authentic Learning

In this interactive workshop participants will explore how Student Leadership for Change (SLC) inquiry-based online learning resources flip the classroom to support students in developing critical thinking skills and a sense of agency while learning about global sustainability. The workshop will highlight how SLC connects with Core Competencies, Climate Change Education, First Peoples Principles of Learning, Place-Based Learning, Inquiry-Based Learning, and Place-Based Learning. Participants will be invited to express both their concerns and successes with bringing climate justice education into the classroom. They will also receive free access to our full suite of eco-social learning resources and be guided through their pedagogical approaches as well as how to access and common uses.
