Since my TEDx talk was released, I have been receiving lots of emails from people wanting to learn how to implement the ideas I shared. I’ve also been hearing from humane educators and groups doing fantastic work across the globe. In my next several blog posts, I will be sharing some of their great work; but to address the most common question I’ve been receiving: “How can I learn more about how to put these ideas into practice?” I wanted to share with you some upcoming opportunities.
The Institute for Humane Education (IHE) is offering its month-long, online course, Teaching for a Positive Future, starting February 7. This course (which offers CEUs from the University of Maine) offers educators anywhere in the world the opportunity to dive into the issues that comprise humane education (human rights, environmental preservation and animal protection); dive into themselves and their passion for teaching; dive into conversation with other passionate educators who want to teach for a better world, and develop new ideas, approaches, and enthusiasm for bringing the most pressing issues of our time into their classrooms.
