Ce cours offre une occasion d’explorer l’enseignement primaire et secondaire dans une perspective d’éducation relative à l’environnement (ERE). Les méthodes quantitatives et qualitatives appliqués aux problématiques environnementales permettent l’élaboration d’activités interdisciplinaires et expérientielles qui sont en lien direct avec les visées éducatives du programme du Ministère de l’Éducation de la Colombie-Britannique. L’accent est mis sur l’engagement dans des projets ancrés dans la communauté et qui permettent d’apprécier l’impact de la pédagogie par l’action.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
