Transforming Classroom Culture:
6-hour workshop

“It’s not what you’re teaching, it’s how you teach it.”

The essence of this workshop:

Teachers! Explore practical, tried-and-true methods of transforming your classroom into a rich, engaging, educational experience for both you and your students.

Is it for me?

  • Are you a teacher or administrator in an academic setting?
  • Do you feel limited and bored by the daily delivery of mandated curriculum to students who couldn’t care less?
  • Do you sometimes feel disillusioned or stuck with your career choice?
  • Do you wish for deeper relationships with your students that enrich and nourish you both?  
  • Do you have a sense there is more to teaching than is going on in your classroom?
  • Are you interested in more hands-on, out-of-the-box ways of managing your classes?
  • Do you sometimes feel cut off from nature in your classroom, and wish you had more tools to teach from a nature-based or environmental perspective?

What will this workshop cover?

  • How modern-day culture influences our methods of education
  • The value of experience, emotion, nature, and self in the classroom, whatever the subject
  • The interplay between your classroom and the natural world
  • Personal explorations: what’s your biggest obstacle to running a great class? What type of culture would you like to foster in your classroom? What is your personal teaching style, and how can you use it to transform your classroom?
  • Basic mindfulness exercises that you can use with your students, as well as to enhance your wellness and self-care as an educator
  • A simple, take-home system that can be applied to any course to create dynamic, memorable lessons and encourage deeper student engagement and collaborative work

This introductory workshop aims to revitalize your concept of Nature, offering the tools and information needed to bring out the Eco Leader in you.
