A number of participants have asked for the CAEE portfolio rubric. Here is the link: https://www.caee.org/how-get-certified
Make sure to scroll down to the middle of the page. The master level rubric is most interesting
Thanks for sharing, Howard! It helps to see what you are doing in Colorado around certification. What do you think certification does for EE in your state?
I think certification provides a framework for discussion among numerous environmental educators in Colorado. We get together semi-annually to review portfolios and compare our views on why people are qualified (or not). In my case, the portfolio has been helpful to structure my whole EE program and allow for external feedback. If my colleagues at CAEE who review portfolios think my students' work is good enough to achieve a master level certification, this provides an external assessment of our program.
