This program is intended for students wishing to dig deep as environmental educators, natural historians or in a related field. Students will work independently or in small teams, with faculty support, to develop a course of study or complete a prearranged internship. Students will propose, undertake and evaluate a quarter-long project that may draw widely from the fields of environmental education (in either formal or nonformal settings), natural history (including field work, journaling and writing), place-based education, sustainability studies, outdoor leadership or related fields. A few sample project ideas include internships with local environmental education organizations, Evergreen's The Outdoor Program (TOP), or Wildlife Department field work at Joint Base Lewis McChord. Although students are encouraged to design their own projects, a list of potential projects and internships will be posted on the program moodle site prior to week one. There are no special expenses associated with the program, but students should consider their transportation needs in planning internships.
During week one, students will use a process similar to Evergreen's independent learning contracts to propose and plan their projects. Thereafter, weekly seminars and workshops will support student project work. Students will be expected to participate in all program activities, give regular project updates, receive feedback from and give feedback to their peers and submit weekly progress reports. Students will present their work during a week ten symposium at the end of spring quarter that will aim to locate themes and trends to guide their future studies and/or work in the field.
Students will be evaluated on their project proposal, weekly participation and progress reports, final presentation, symposium participation and self-evaluation of their own learning.
