We are proud to announce that FIELD EDventures (formally known as the Wisconsin Green Schools Network) will anchor our Wisconsin Hub. Regional Hubs are essential elements of the Rural Schools Collaborative, they provide an infrastructure that supports our mission-driven work with the Place Network, Grants in Place, Rural Teacher Corps, and School-Centered Philanthropy initiatives. The relationship between the Hub partners and RSC is mutually beneficial, as exemplified in this new partnership. Read more about FIELD EDventures below.
FIELD EDventures connects with educators to explore natural and cultural systems and engage learners and leaders for thriving individuals and communities. Since 2008, FIELD EDventures has supported more than 50 schools and hundreds of educators to implement the F.I.E.L.D. Corps (Fostering Inquiry and Engaging Learners Through Discovery) model rooted in place-based environmental education. F.I.E.L.D. Corps educators design and facilitate learning experiences, both inside and outside the classroom, that engage students in meaningful, real-world investigations
F.I.E.L.D. Corps is delivered through professional development, coaching, and technical assistance. Professional development takes the form of workshops, online modules, and other events for early childhood through post-secondary classroom teachers and non-formal educators. Coaching is an in-depth approach where FIELD EDventures staff work side-by-side with teachers in and outside of their classroom to co-plan, co-teach, and co-reflect for long-term instructional change. Coaches can also provide technical assistance for school design, coherence models, curriculum frameworks, websites, and more. Learn more at https://www.connectexploreengage.org/.
