Environmental Literacy | Building on the mandate of the Ministry of Education in British Columbia to prioritize environmental curriculum in elementary and secondary education, this course provides a working knowledge of theories and practices for future teachers that position literacy from an environmental and ecological perspective. Bridging natural and virtual ecologies across a range of disciplines, this course affords opportunities for students to explore personal, pedagogical, and research-based relationships to a variety of information environments. It also develops ecological approaches to literacy teaching and research that emphasize sustainability and the creative potential for ecological education rooted in lived experiences.
