Earthducation receives University Discovery Grant
Earthducation, a research project started by Aaron Doering, Charles Miller, and Cassie Scharber (learning technologies faculty in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction), received a Discovery Grant from the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota. The grant will help support the learning technologies faculty in their research pursuits.
The mission behind Earthducation is to collaborate with cultures from around the globe to develop an ecological narrative based on two fundamental questions:
- What is education to you?
- Can education advance sustainability?
The new Discovery Grants cut across numerous campus units and involve many different departments, colleges and outside partners. The projects were selected through a rigorous review process involving outside national experts as well as internal strategic reviews
