      Dear All,

      It was a wonderful pleasure to attend the Arizona Crossroads Summit last month and to connect with AAEE.  Thank you so much for that excellent day of conversation. 

      I wanted to let you know that we (NAU's Master of Liberal Studies program on Sustainable Communities) are sponsoring a weekend course/workshop with Dr. C.A. (Chet Bowers), May 19-21.  I've attached a flyer and include some information below.  Chet Bowers is one of the preeminent voices in the field of environmental education.  People may participate for 1-unit of graduate credit or on a workshop basis.  Please let me know if you need any further information.  My number is 928-523-2382.  And please let any colleagues or friends know about this special event.  Thanks so much.

      Director, Master of Liberal Studies Program

      May 19-21
      "Educating for a Sustainable Future"
      Guest Instructor:  C.A. Bowers
      1 unit
      May 19:  5:30-8:30 p.m.
      May 20:  9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
      May 21:  9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
      location:  Eastburn Education Building, Room 200, NAU campus
      Please read "The False Promises of Constructivist Theories of Learning: A Global and Ecological Critique" by C.A. Bowers, prior to the first class meeting.
      Available for graduate credit or as a non-credit workshop
      C.A. (Chet) Bowers has written over 90 articles and 16 books that examine how language reproduces pre-ecological ways of thinking, the connections between emancipatory/transformative ways of thinking and the globalization of the WestÂ’s industrial culture. In more recent years he has turned his attention to understanding the educational implications of eco-justice for Third World cultures, the prospects of future generations, and the need to revitalize the commons as sites of resistance to economic globalization and further environmental degradation.

      In this class, guest Professor Bowers will address how education reproduces and produces knowledge and the role such knowledge plays in sustaining or undermining the commons.
