SEEd is again running the very successful online professional development programme on sustainable schools developed by WWF-UK. 'Opening the Doorway to Sustainability' runs from January 2011 for 10 weeks. Enrolment is now underway and again generating interest amongst UK schools, teachers and sustainability networks.
The course is the equivalent of 4 full days inservice, but it only takes a couple of hours a week. It saves finding substitute teachers and travel costs but still encourages full discussions, participation and sharing and so is true value for money and makes environmental sense too.
Opening the Doorway to Sustainability takes a Learning for Sustainability approach, involving critical thinking, action learning and participatory approaches based on the DfEs National Framework for Sustainable Schools. You will develop an action learning project and get support and advice as you implement it.
The online program is fully facilitated by experienced educators and researchers from the environment, development and sustainability sectors and to build on last year's successful events there will be visiting experts from the energy sector and wider context.
