Bringing It Home: Elements of Effective Diverse Education!
Registration is now open for the fantastic BOEP Annual Conference!
Overview: This year Four Corners School of Outdoor Education and its BOEP program are partnering with Utah State University and their iUtah EPSCoR project for our annual conference.
The Bioregional Outdoor Education Project (BOEP) is a program of the Four Corners School of Outdoor Education (FCS). It is a year long, professional development program committed to helping teachers on the Colorado Plateau discover the power of “place” in everyday learning, empowering their students to grasp the significance of their own place. This conference is an annual event to bring together teachers, and other educators from the Colorado Plateau Bioregion, to learn bioregionally focused, place-based, hands-on, cross-curricular, outdoor education lessons.
iUTAH, (innovative Urban Transitions and Aridregion Hydro-sustainability), is an interdisciplinary effort among researchers from Utah State University, the University of Utah, and two dozen other Utah institutions of higher education, government agencies, industry, and non-profit partners. iUtah, as well as Four Corners School, have a goal to increase the institutional, individual, disciplinary, and geographic diversity of the STEM enterprise in Utah in order to address the water sustainability issues facing Utah and the Mountain West, and this conference is a first step in that process. iUTAH is integrating diversity plans throughout the project to enhance institutional, individual, disciplinary, and geographic diversity of STEM teaching and learning.
