We invite you to register for our new workshop-course, “The Learning Cycle for Environmental Education.” The methodology of the Learning Cycle, when applied to schools, is called “Ecology in the Schoolyard.” It is a very practical methodology, fun to use, which may be applied across disciplines, for example in Biology and in Social Science. It is based on a didactic summary of the scientific method, seeking to find the answer to questions that arise from the observation of nature and from simple curiosity. The Learning Cycle helps develop the ability to create questions, observe, register data, compare, draw conclusions and extrapolate, thus developing transversal abilities and logical thinking. This workshop will be run by the environmental educator Ursula Fernandez with assistance from Veronica Rojas.
The workshop last 3 days from 25-27 of April, 2019. The cost is $145,000 (Chilean pesos) and includes housing, food and materials. Registration is now open. To register please download the registration form here or in google forms. Questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
