CHE Environmental Colloquium – Justin Hougham

Scientific Storytelling as an Approach to Decolonizing Science Education

Environmental education aims to produce an environmentally literate citizenry. However, much of the curricular focus has little discussion about the environmental problems created by the dominant Western cultural norms. Narratives in scientific discourse fall short of authentically representing environmental justice realities experienced by learners and educators. Authentic narratives represented in scientific storytelling are one approach to addressing the opportunities presented in environmental education.
