Environmental Education Program: Enhancing Teacher Educators' Environmental Awareness and Understanding

Publisher: Bicol University

Environmental issues related to human activities are increasingly becoming a serious concern. One way of preventing them is to promote environmental education in all sectors, starting with the academe, particularly in a teacher education institution. This study assessed the teacher educators' awareness and understanding of environmental education concepts and principles, which served as the basis for developing an environmental education program. It used questionnaires and tests to gather data from teacher educators in a university. Findings show that although they are highly aware of ecological principles, they only have an average understanding of environmental education concepts. The researcher designed an Environmental Education Program for teacher educators using non-threatening adult learning methodologies appropriate for their function as educators of future teachers. Activities in the program include an environmental audit of the teacher educators' immediate work environment, reviewing and clarifying current practices, and implementing solutions to the identified concerns. The experiences enhanced their awareness and understanding of environmental education concepts, which are crucial in their tasks as mentors to future teachers of the next generation of learners.
