Compass Education Level 1 Certification Workshop – Thinking, Learning and Acting for a
Flourishing and Sustainable World

Workshop Overview

Oftentimes when it comes to approaching global issues, service, and sustainability, students and teachers are left with a nagging sense of gloom-and-doom, the feeling that somehow we are all responsible for destroying the planet but with no real way of understanding the complexity of the situation or, more importantly, what to do about it. In this course, educators will be empowered with a suite of tools developed by sustainability consultant Alan AtKisson to help both educators and students think critically and creatively about the bigger picture, gain a deeper understanding of sustainability, and understand our own contributions to the world. These tools and systems thinking methods will enable educators to help students develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to participate in a complex and interdependent world. The course will be a mix of theory and practice; educators will see examples of these tools in practice and be invited to innovate and strengthen their lessons, units, and programs.

This course is Level 1 of Compass Education’s 3-level educator training program.
