Still in an environmental education curriculum research story
The Environmental Education Curriculum Initiative (EECI) in partnership with the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) are currently supporting and facilitating a national environmental education curriculum research project. The project was initiated in response to the perceived need for environmental educators in South Africa to engage in a collaborative research process to further our understanding and practice of environmental education curriculum development and research. Although the research process is still unfolding, as co-ordinator of the project I felt that it might prove useful to pause and to reflect on the research project and the broader context within which it is located. As I am part of the collaborative process my impressions are but a single frame in a broader unfolding research story. The purpose of this paper is to initiate critical discussion on the extent to which the HSRC-EECI research project is able to support and offer new perspectives on environmental education research processes within South Africa.
