Vancouver Botanical Gardens Association

Teacher candidates will gain valuable experience in outdoor environmental education and curriculum development working with The Vancouver Botanical Gardens Association (VBGA) at VanDusen Botanical Garden and Bloedel Conservatory. TCs will support the Education Department by shadowing garden educators and assisting with group facilitation and program evaluation. TCs will review our curriculum and programming, identify potential resources and gaps, and develop new or supplemental material aligned with BC curricular and core competencies. Individual projects will vary according to backgrounds and interests, but all projects will identify intended learning outcomes, highlight the garden’s key features, and facilitate learning in a dynamic, outdoor environment.
