The focus of this portfolio is climate change education, with a particular emphasis on the challenges facing educators in Alberta where economic matters are often prioritized over environmental ones and the lessons we can learn from paying attention to the experiences of climate change educators elsewhere and to recent research in the field. In the past year, I volunteered with the Alberta Council for Environmental Education (ACEE) to collaboratively develop materials to support educational workshops for teachers, non-governmental organizations, and government of Alberta representatives. My MEd studies were particularly helpful in the development of a guidebook, What Is Excellent Climate Change Education? that is now published online by the ACEE. My MEd portfolio captures some aspects of my work with ACEE and includes three tasks: 1) a literature review; 2) an annotated bibliography; and 3) a short reflection paper.
