Integrating Ecology Across the Curriculum (BCE)
This course will help participants to gain confidence in incorporating ecology as a theme in their teaching and leadership. We will explore the cross-curriculum priority of Sustainability, Brisbane Archdiocese Religious Education Curriculum P-12, the Catholic Identity Framework and Pope Francis’ Encyclical Laudato Si’: On Care for our Common Home. Participants will learn more about ‘education for sustainability’ and ‘ecological conversion’ and what this means as an educator along with how to integrate this concept across all learning areas. Participants will be provided with case studies from schools and planning time to develop a unit of work.
