What participants have said
“A refreshing way to consider how climate change could be part of everyday teaching. A must for any educator! ”
“It's a wonderful course, highly recommended!!”
“This course is very useful in helping generating ideas between participants. We learn from each other as well as getting the chance to visit a site with example materials. Perhaps the most useful thing I will take away is that I can see it is possible to integrate environmental perspectives more purposefully, and that the opportunities we had to share reflections on this have been very refreshing.”
“This course is the perfect length to get your teeth into the subject, work with colleagues to generate lots of exciting ideas and create something valuable. The length was key for me. Any longer and I might have got distracted. It ended on a high note with feelings of positivity, motivation and that feeling you get when you know you aren't alone. Other people care about the planet too! ”
“If you’re thinking of ‘bringing in topics of sustainability to your teaching‘ and would like to discuss ideas with like-minded colleagues and get feedback, I’d recommend it. It is helping me think through some of my ideas and has added to the motivation for me to finally start writing on this topic here on my blog. ”
“Owain is fab. He was one of my MA students and his work is excellent. He was very early to the climate stuff and his time has come. ”
You will Inspire your students to positively engage with environmental issues and sustainability on their language learning journey after taking this course
