A Natural Approach to Education
The best educators are those who can creatively teach core curriculum topics both inside and outside the classroom. By adding EBL credentials to your resume, you will learn how to use assets within your own community to engage and motivate students to want to learn.
Mary Baldwin College offers one of the nation’s first environment-based learning (EBL) graduate programs designed specifically for educators. With an environment-based educational approach, educators use the local community and environment to teach all subjects in a way that is meaningful and relevant to K-12 students.
By integrating an outdoor inquiry-based education model into their curriculum, teachers can help their students develop critical thinking skills, become better problem solvers, learn “deep” content knowledge, gain an appreciation for their surroundings, and through this process, become more environmentally literate citizens.
EBL courses like Math in the Garden, The Intersection of Life and Land, and Natural Research empower you to teach relevant content through engagement with the world outside your classroom walls.
