eeLEARN is a series of online learning modules that cover the core concepts in environmental education produced by the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), with support from the United States Environmental Protection Agency. In Module 1: What Is EE, students learn about the definition of environment education, the “big ideas” of the field, and the relationship between environmental education and environmental literacy. Module 2: The History of EE, takes students on a journey through the history of environmental education to learn about some key people and milestones. Module 3: Research and Evaluation, evaluates environmental education and the relationship between research and practice. A special module, Equitable and Inclusive EE, discusses the importance of equity and inclusion to the success of the field of environmental education. This module was created to help promote principles that build a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive movement and focus on promoting all three tiers of sustainability: ecological integrity, economic prosperity, and social equity.
