Environmental Education Research Bulletin Issue 12

ChangeScale and the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) have collaborated with researchers at Stanford University to create this 12th issue of the Environmental Education Research Bulletin. Talented environmental educators are conducting high-quality programs, collaborating with communities, using hands-on strategies, and making critical links that help enhance environmental awareness, build skills, and support informed action. Yet, many of these committed professionals lack the time to keep up on the latest research, which may provide insight into how to improve the effectiveness of their work. We hope these Research Bulletins can bridge research and practice by summarizing recently reported research and helping practitioners use findings to enhance their programs.

This issue includes synopses of peer-reviewed journal articles that are particularly relevant for frontline environmental education practitioners. We reviewed issues (published between July and December 2016) of a number of environmental education-related journals, including Journal of Environmental EducationEnvironmental Education ResearchApplied Environmental Education & Communication, Australian Journal of Environmental EducationJournal of Experiential EducationScience Education, Journal of Interpretation Research, Journal of Environmental Psychology, and Visitor Studies.
