The Guidelines for Excellence describe best practices in Environmental Education for K-12 learners, nonformal educators, early childhood education, materials, professional development, and community engagement. More than just another set of standards, these resources can help improve your teaching and programs.
Previously, all training about the Guidelines for Excellence was managed at the national level. EENC is one of four state selected to pilot a new state-level program. What does this mean? You can expect more Guidelines workshops, for sure! Later this year, EENC will be hosting one workshop for those interested in becoming trainers and at least one additional workshop for educators interested in learning how the Guidelines can help.
We'll post details on EENC's web page once we finalize dates, but we're excited to be able to offer these additional professional development opportunities to support North Carolina's EE community!
