Promoting Professional Development and Best Practice in EE
MAEOE Has Adopted the Guidelines for Excellence!
The Michigan Alliance for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE) has taken the plunge and officially Adopted the Guidelines! What does that mean? Well, I'll let MAEOE speak for itself "By adopting them, we help move our organization's mission forward to promote environmental literacy. Currently, we already consciously promote the Guidelines through our EE certification program - which is in its fourth year."
On Saturday, June 15th, the MAEOE board of directors voted in favor of the following resolution:
We, the Michigan Alliance for Environmental and Outdoor Education - MAEOE, will:
- Promote the Guidelines around the conference and other events we sponsor
- Promote the Guidelines in our publications and marketing
- Actively reach out to other environmental education leaders and demonstrate how the Guidelines can help increase the quality of environmental education programs
- Use the Guidelines when developing programs, funding proposals, requests for proposals, and materials
NAAEE and the National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education encourage stakeholder groups to Adopt the Guidelines and apply them to their work. By adopting the Guidelines, your organization will help to develop awareness of the National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, improve the quality of environmental education practice, and build credibility for the field.
Through the National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education website you can access all of the Guidelines publications for free. In addition, we sponsor the Guidelines Trainer's Bureau. Guidelines Trainer's Bureau members are available to give presentations to a variety of audiences on how the Guidelines can be used.
Shouldn't your organization join the growing list of those who commit to using the Guidelines for Excellence to promote quality environmental education practice?
