Place-based education in Victoria

I am a recent graduate from the University of Victoria PDPE program - Middle School Option.

During my internship, it became apparent that the structure of the classroom and the limitations forced by a timetable with 45 minute blocks was  preventing students being exposed to sustainability education. The limitations of the schedule made it impossible or very difficult to teach interdisciplinary lessons outside of the classroom. Experiential learning in the field was therefore not part of the way curriculum was delivered.
