Advancing Climate Change Environmental Education: Materials from the Project-based Online Learning Community Alliance (POLCA)

Abstract: This U.S. EPA-funded EE Capacity Online Learning Community worked for 8 months in 2013 creating materials aimed at encouraging and supporting formal and informal educators not yet addressing climate change education in getting started. Leaders of POLCA will introduce participants to their multidisciplinary product by highlighting unique elements of their e-publication (from the needs assessment to fitting climate change with social studies and common core standards to learner-focused action projects for learners of all ages).

Presenters: The POLCA leadership team. These environmental educators facilitated the working groups responsible for creating each of the chapters:
- Christopher Johnson, Educational Consultant
- Deborah Shiflett-Fitton, Cape Light Compact
- Jennifer Hubbard-Sánchez, Kentucky State University
- Kristen Poppleton, Will Steger Foundation
- Lisa LaRocque, Intercambios
- Lori Kumler, University of Mount Union
- Susan Jane Gentile, Antioch University and Living Routes and
- Karen Hollweg, EE Capacity Professional Learning Community Lead Facilitator

The presenters ask that participants open both the PowerPoint slides AND OPEN THE ENTIRE PUBLICATION (all 12 sections). They will be referring to both the PowerPoint and multiple sections of the e-publication during the telecon.
