ExpiredPathways to Possibilities: Science Education and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (Gr. K-12)

Course Code: SI-8

Part 1 – August 24, 2021; Part 2 – August 25, 2021


In this two-part OTF Summer Institute, Kindergarten – Grade 12 Science educators will embark on a journey to transform Science teaching practices. Participants will be inspired to evaluate “why” the current state of Science knowledge construction needs to evolve, while exploring the key elements required to use the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a launching point for teaching in authentic contexts. Participants will collaboratively identify “how” to make the shift towards teaching for enduring impacts. This Institute will demonstrate how the SDGs and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) can positively impact pedagogy and support students to take action in personally relevant ways in their communities, and beyond. This Summer Institute is facilitated by members of the Science Teachers’ Association of Ontario (STAO), a subject/division association in Ontario.
