ABOUT THE COURSE

The course will educate participants on the Inter linkages between various themes of the environment. The course comprises of self-study and has been designed in a way to help the participants study the resource material in a structured manner during the four-week period. Participants will be provided learning material such as presentations, audios and videos, real-world case studies, etc. Quizzes and assignments will also be part of this course. An orientation webinar will also be organized to introduce the course and answer queries that participants may have.   

Background:
As per the Supreme Court’s order (November 22, 1991) and directive (December 18, 2003), study of the environment has been made a compulsory component of the curriculum in all educational agencies in the country. National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) also prepared a syllabus for all classes from 11 to 12, on environment education, in line with the Constitution of India.

The gap however still remains to be filled, as far as, environment education is concerned. Environment remains a peripheral issue in the formal schooling system and continues to be viewed more as an extracurricular activity and less as a subject with a priority position in the national curriculum.

Learning Objectives:

  • To introduce the multidisciplinary approach to environment education
  • To help participants acquire knowledge and skills to understand the issue of climate change and environment in today’s world
  • To integrate environment in daily classroom teaching 

Target Audience:

  • Teachers from all subjects and teaching different class levels
  • Freelancer/Professionals from NGOs working in the education sector in India

PARTICIPANTS WILL BE AWARDED WITH A CERTIFICATE ON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE COURSE.
