Students enrolled in the direction of “Pedagogical Education” were told about environmental education in schools in China and Russia.
The organizers of the joint seminar were Svetlana Grigorievna Rubakhina, Associate Professor of the Department of Botany and Plant Physiology, and Irina Vasilievna Komarova, Associate Professor of the Department of Theory and Methods of Primary Education.
During the seminar, students learned about the organization of environmental education in Chinese and Russian schools. PetrSU student Tu Anh spoke about the approaches to the organization and implementation of environmental research projects by schoolchildren, their participation in scientific conferences and answered students’ questions:
Many questions arose about the participation of children in international environmental actions. During the holidays, the school organizes environmental camps, where environmental projects and environmental actions are carried out. Additional education institutions exist, but environmental education is carried out at school. In high school, ecology is taught as a separate subject, the study of which ends with an exam.
The event was attended by 3rd year students of the Institute of Pedagogy and Psychology and 3rd year students of the Institute of Biology, Ecology and Agrotechnology, studying in the profiles “Primary Education” and “Biology and Chemistry”.
The organizers of the event thanked the specialist of PetrSU Yulia Vasilievna Komarova for the technical support of the video-conference session.
