Welcome to Connecting Students, STEM, and Standards through Field Investigations, Project-Based Learning and Systems Thinking. This online tutorial is part of the Conservation Education Strategy Series from the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AWFA). Our tutorial format offers a simple set of modules that incorporate presentations, activities and reflections in order to acquaint you with the guides and teaching resources for using Standards based teaching, Field Investigations, Project-Based Learning, and Technology in your instructional activities. The materials were developed by the Pacific Education Institute (PEI) as part of the Conservation Education Strategy supported by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. Each module contains readings and activities that can be completed individually or with a group. The self-paced nature of the tutorial allows you to take the time necessary to gain deeper understanding and put these concepts into practice. The presentations, activities and reflections in this tutorial will help you become more equipped to integrate the standards and best practices for field investigations, project-based learning and systems thinking in the classroom, schoolyard and local natural areas. Successful completion will earn you a certificate of completion for 12.5 hours of professional development.
