The Teachers' Environment Network (TEN) are free professional learning events that are run each term to support school and ELC educators, staff and parents to network, share resources and connect to the local environment! A wide range of topics are covered, with a focus on embedding sustainability and environmental education in classroom teaching. Emphasis is on STEAM/STEM and inquiry-based learning with a variety of topics covered such as climate change and ecosystems, habitat improvements for local species and plastics in our oceans and on land.
Our workshops are open to all teachers and members of school-based "green teams" who are motivated to bring the issue of sustainability to the fore in their schools.
Date: Wednesday, 10 November
Time: 4pm to 5:30pm
As we enter the warmer months, join us for a deep dive into Melbourne's Big Blue Backyard! We will explore the importance of Port Phillip Bay's diverse ecosystems and the wonder this can inspire in students. Come hear about the work being done by the EcoCentre to protect and promote the health of this unique underwater world, including citizen science initiatives, and how this can provide a range of authentic learning opportunities.
In this session we will hear from a couple of local schools about how they've integrated this outdoor classroom into their student learning and engagement. We will also share some curriculum resources and activities that can be implemented in the classroom for a range of year levels and subject areas.
