Diverse Pedagogies of Place : Educating Students in and for Local and Global Environments Hardback

Edited by Peter (University of Queensland, Australia) Renshaw, Ron (University of Queensland, Australia) Tooth

Part of the Routledge Research in Education series

Hardback

Description

Diverse Pedagogies of Place presents eight original place-responsive pedagogies that address a question of paramount importance in today's world: how do we educate the next generation of students to confront the challenges of global climate change and the on-going degradation of natural environments?

Each place-responsive pedagogy is a result of innovative environmental educators' long-term engagement with particular places, and demonstrates that personal connectedness is crucial to effective environmental education.

Professional learning and teacher collaboration is an important theme throughout the book, and the editors discuss how teachers could adapt the learning activities and teaching strategies found in the book in order to create their own place-responsive pedagogies.

Each case study provides a rich account of how students can learn to be attentive and draws upon a common analytical framework derived from recent theorisation of place that highlights the centrality of stories-in-place, embodiment, and contestation.

The authors present detailed and persuasive evidence that place-responsive pedagogies enable students to construct their own identities, as well as develop commitments and a deeper knowledge of the environments that surround them.

A work of international relevance, Diverse Pedagogies of Place will appeal to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of environmental education and sustainability, place-based education, outdoor learning, professional learning and teacher development, as well as policymakers and environmental educators.
